An extra last day!

When we got to the airport on Sunday morning and were checking in our luggage,they asked us if we'd like to stay another day.The plane was overbooked and she said to go to our gate and volunteer if we want to.So we talked about it on the way to our boarding gate and we thought hmmm...80 degrees or cold snowy.... didn't take much hesitation for any of us.So we told Lisa the airline person at our gate(who by the way had a great sense of humor),that we volunteer to stay in this 80 degree weather,hard as it may be.We had to wait until most everyone was boarded and it turned out that we were indeed bumped.They got our luggage off,sent us to a Holiday Inn with room and food vouchers and a $300 airline voucher.AND Lisa said we'd hate her for it,but the only seats we could get for the next day were in FIRST CLASS!So we got our vouchers and a shuttle to the hotel,where we checked in and headed out to the pool by 11.We each even had our own room, right next to each other!So we spent the day lounging and reading...a very restful extra last day!

That was a no-brainer, wasn't it? Who wouldn't want the 80degree weather!??
