Love Letter on an Airsickness Bag: Woman Takes a Last Shot Declaring a Crush

A 21 year old woman named Andrea flew from Miami to DC. Inflight internet wasn’t working but her mind was on overdrive. She had a huge crush on her best friend. She showed up at the airport to meet him during his connection… before heading off to study in Australia for a semester.

And she shared the teen romance drama on an airsickness bag, discovered by an aircraft cleaner and posted to Reddit.

Found this in the back pocket of a seat on an aircraft I was cleaning last year. Where ever you are, I hope it went well for you. from r/pics

If you’re reading this, hello 🙂 My name is Andrea and I am incredibly bored. Right now this flight is going from Miami to DC. I’m 21.

So I bought the ticket last night at 4 am because I have a huge crush on my best friend. He’s flying from Boston to New Orleans and has a layover in DC. I actually live in DC and was gonna go up soon anyway so I thought why not, I’ll surprise him at the airport during his layover. I’m gonna tell him I have a crush on him.

Bold move right? But see I’m going to Australia for a semester abroad in 4 days and I won’t see him for 5 months so it’s really the last chance I have.

I don’t really know what I’m gonna say but I’m just gonna wing it. Why not I mean I’m leaving so who cares. I dunno man wish me luck whoever you are.

Yeah yeah I’m lame for writing this on a barf bag but I’m bored, my wifi doesn’t work, and I’m nervous as [f—] so this is me venting. The enormous Starbucks pumped with caffeine probably isn’t helping either. Anyway hope this has made your flight a little less boring.

Do me a favor and do something crazy today like I am. Good luck whoever you are.


She chronicled the first part of the story but no one has found the next installment in their seatback pocket. The internet is doing its best to figure out what happened to Andrea – and to her love.


Do we think they had an Affair to Remember?

    in any case, she may be experiencing hormonal yearnings, maternal desires to replicate her best friend’s and her own genes?

    good to see she got it all off her chest.
