PP:39 in JFK after a crazy day

Today was kind of a crazy day...

Just after take-off in LA we smelled smoke/burning in the cabin.  For those of you who are or have ever been in the airline industry, "smoke in the cabin" is one of the worst things you can hear.  We turned right back around for an emergency landing, fire trucks met us on the tarmac, and when the doors opened, there stood two enormous men dressed in silver suits who looked like linebacker astronauts.  It didn't escalate, we all deplaned normally, but it got our blood rushing pretty good.  We took a little time to recompose ourselves away from the crowd, then returned to work and got our passengers to New York just a couple hours late.  When we arrived at the hotel, I saw these three crew mates down in the lobby, and went over to sit with them & share my day.  Mikita was in my training class two years ago, and the other two girls were on their very first trip out of their training the week before.  I debated whether or not to share my story with them, afraid it might not be what they needed to hear on their first trip. Ultimately, I figured it would be good to hear that it's not all fun and games up there, and when you do go through something serious, it brings you closer to those you are with, and makes you fall in love with the job that much more.
