Alright, 13 hours is a long time to be curled up in airplane. However, today I experienced the mystical world of business class. My lovely flight attendant, Mari, must have thought I was a total nut since every time she approached me in my lazyboy-esque chair and refilled my water bottle, offered me a fancy treat, or at the beginning of the flight when she hung my jacket for me and offered me a pair of Bose noise-canceling headphones, I think my reaction could be likened to that scene in Elf, when Will Ferrell happily keeps excepting the sales fliers from the gentlemen on the streets of NYC (“Thank you… Thank you… Thank you.”) I really needed to say ‘no’ at some point but I didn’t. And so this morning my first stop will be the fitness center so I can attempt to burn off, at least a spoonful of that chocolate sundae I consumed.
Another bonus was the movie selection I had at my fingertips. Did a lot of catch-up! I watched The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (Delightful), Perks of Being a Wildflower (Love a good coming of age tale), Odd Life of Timothy Green (Heartwarming) and Won’t Back Down (Thank the great teachers you know, NOW!) Good thing I’ve already seen The Katy Perry Movie: Part of Me. There just wouldn’t have been enough time…
What I could have watched but didn’t because I’d already actually paid money to rent it… (Katy Perry)
