Good morning from…well, I guess that’s the rub! Here are some clues: 1) this time I went north-south rather than east-west; 2) my flight cost less than $100: and 3) the Jet Blue purser (I think that’s the right word) managed to make my destination sound very sexy and alluring during the in-flight announcements. Though, to be fair, they manage to make just about every destination seem sexy and alluring the way they describe it!
I love Jet Blue. They have good snacks, friendly flight attendants, more legroom, an excellent credit card, seatback entertainment on every flight (unlike, ahem, United), non stops on the routes I want (unlike, ahem, ahem, United), and wi-fi that works well almost all the time (unlike…oh, never mind). Even our delay was described in a way that made it seem forgivable. Besides, I had a mid-day flight, which, after all the red-eyes and dawn departures, was sweet ambrosia.
Logan was a lot less crowded than last week, which was school vacation, but no less weird (and also no prospective Harvard students!). For example, the TSA officer kept telling everyone to assume a “wider stance” in the metal detector machine, which brought back uncomfortable memories of a certain Republican Senator caught in a bathroom sting a while back.
And speaking of bathrooms, dudes, drop the call when you’re dropping a deuce. I can hear every word you’re saying. And besides, it’s just gross!
But never mind that. I had a nice flight, read part of a script and watched part of Mean Girls, which remains hilarious, and now I’m up early and ready to watch a magnificent ocean sunrise. Stay tuned!
