we sat there in line to take off for several hours but they opened up the bar and food appeared out of almost every luggage bin, food intended for the relatives in New York or Chicago

both the Pilot and Copilot also wandered in just to keep us informed about the status.

It was both the longest and shortest flight from San Juan I ever experienced

jar: you experienced what we know as "La Guagua Aerea" or the air bus as depicted in the movie by the same name

You should recall that as soon as the plane landed the passangers would clap their hands wildly
New 06:45

yes, ball points and roller balls are of the devil; souless
New 11:26
I do have some Parker ballpoints/rollerballs - but one, it leaked everywhere, and it is a sticky ink...
New 11:42
the only ballpoint i have ever found to be reliable is a Fischer Space Pen. dead reliable. But not nice to write with, so long writing sessions are a no go. quick notes? fine. if you don't have a pencil around.

New 12:05
If you're going for a throway the ALWAYS works and writes really clearly, go for Stabilo point 88.
