What is a lifeku?

A lifeku is a haiku about daily life. For those who are unfamiliar with haiku, it is a form of Japanese poetry usually about nature, "profound," and formatted in 3 lines of 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and 5 syllables. Feel free to check out some famous haikus if you still don't get it.

I'm flying back to the states for the holidays next week, which means I have mentally been preparing for international air travel since before Halloween. It's funny how people turn into complete psychopaths when given only 2 cubic feet to live in for 8 hours. I'm sure the flights to and from Paris and DC will inspire many a lifeku, but I thought I would warm up with memories of previous travels and delightful adventures:

Voluminous girl
You take up two seats, not one
Who are you kidding?

No freaking kidding. I am all in support of someone having to buy two seats if they take up two seats. Or airlines should provide "hefty seats" in the back that cost a little more for those that can't quite fit their entire bodies into one seat. I can't even count how many times someone has taken up part of my seat with their enormousness.

I, too, once had the middle seat, seat F, and it was the worst flight ever between two should-be sumo men, sweating and eating the arm rest with their butter rolls. East to west coast, I stood in the back for more than half of the trip, getting tipsy.

quick off the top...

Oh no not this time
I'm as long as you are wide
Seat "F" stands for "fucked"

@msc: The middle bitch seat is by far the worst... if and when you get put there, make a huge scene claiming you're claustrophobic (or travel with a dog and or baby) and people will change with you.
