Flying with a possessed kid

The trip back from my vacation started well. So well that it could only get worse.

It did.

My tech support was happy heading home after vacation. Relaxed on the plane, drank the bottle of OJ and was a little angel until the fasten seatbelt sign came on. I don't know what she had against the seatbelt, but it must have been personal. Imagine the scene in The Exorcist where Max von Sydow is trying to exorcise the beast: I talk calmly, sing a bit and promise the impossible when we land but the possessed girl didn't want to be outdone by an old movie, so she started spinning in the belt. Keeping to the script she even threw up. I know it sounds too hard to believe, but she did it on purpose. I know because she continued trying for the rest of the flight while she was screaming Non vooooooooogio at the top of her lungs.

I'm really glad Copenhagen airport is the most kid friendly airport I have been to so she could play and I could recuperate before the next leg.
