Silver Linings Playbook
Yes. It’s true. I almost threw things at 2am when we found out our flight to Sydney was cancelled. Backdraft from another plane blew an orange barrier into one of our engines. What was estimated to be a four hour delay morphed into not leaving Los Angeles at all.

Life is about silver linings. They’re everywhere if we look up.
