At The Airport

June 7, 2005 – 4:30 pm, Dulles Airport, Washington DC

I’m sitting here in the Red Club, United’s First Class lounge, waiting for our flight to Vienna to board. I’m drinking a yummy English toffee coffee (after slurping down a free Blue Marguerita, followed by two chocolate chip shortbread cookies) and I wasn’t even hungry. But hey, you’ve got to take advantage of freebies, right?

Anyway, Kathy surprised me when we got to the airport with the announcement that our airline tickets are in Business Class—the first time I’ve ever flown that way. (Only twice in my life have I flown first-class—once on my way to Egypt and once on my way from Athens to New York) so I’m really happy; I know how the better half live. Maybe if our seats are nice and wide, I’ll be able to sleep tonight, and arrive in Vienna sans jet lag, ready to explore the city.

That’s it for now. It’s time for us to make our way to our gate.
