Sorry I have taken so long to post, school got kind of crazy, but it made for some awesome stories! Now I am on Christmas vacation, so I will hopefully get all of my stories in. Let's start with the start of my vacation and the plane ride home...

There were a couple of good stories from the plane ride. What better way to entertain yourself than to scream at random intervals when no one can run away? I was lucky enough to be sitting next to a friend on the plane ride to Vegas, and everytime I let one out (which there were many), we had ourselves a nice giggle, wondering if anyone even heard. Once they started getting louder, we didn't have to wonder if anyone heard or not. There were two that stuck out.

The first funny story was the first loud one as the flight attendants were doing beverages. They were still a couple rows in front of us when the first loud one came. The flight attendent was so surprised she looked like she was about to fall over. She saw me and Carlos giggle and asked if that was me. I said it was, but explained that I had Tourette's. She said, "Yeah, that's going to be my excuse when I am older, too." As they got closer, this particular flight attendant told the other that she wanted to serve us. She asked for my card (to prove I had tourette's). I do have a card from the school that says I am entitled to special services (I get my own room intstead of having to go to the testing center, I love it!), but she said she was joking. She explained that she often gets in trouble because she is the type to say what is on her mind, and she is saving the Tourette's excuse for when she gets older so she doesn't wear it out. I had to explain that those really are the noises I make from my tourette's, and she just thought that was adorable! I like being called adorable! :)

There were a few other loud ones, and I saw a few heads turn, but then I quieted down for most of the trip. About a half hour before we were supposed to land, I let out another one. This time the 6 year old across the aisle was awake. He didn't know what it was, but his dad kept laughing as his son kept imitating my noises. I only did one, but this kid kept going! He was pretty cute, and I made a new friend.

As we got off the plane, I gave a final squeak of farewell to my flight attendant friend, and made it home to my awesome family. They are adjusting well to the evolution, some better than others. My sister still prefers the pterydactyl, but my brother quite enjoys them and mom keeps telling everyone I make these cute noises. I make so many new friends with this introduction, and I can't help it.
