Today starts a once-a-week intention on my part to share a few personal anecdotes with you all. One of my favorite stories is traveling from Paris to L.A. and meeting Keanu Reeves. Tune in every Wednesday to follow the story. Comments welcome!
Paris to L.A. and free first class upgrade with an empty seat next to me. I recline in the tan leather seat, settling in for the 16 hour flight. Drawling English followed by sing-song French issues forth from the P.A. system, reminding us to stow our carry-ons in the overhead bin or beneath the seat before us. The final passengers are boarding. A lanky guy dressed in black takes the seat in front of me. Like me he has a row to himself, but he’s different from the rest of us; he has no carry-on luggage. He travels light.
He reclines his seat and the flight attendants don’t even ask him to return it to its original upright position prior to take off. Peeking through the space between the seats I complete my assessment. Wow, is he gorgeous. Ten minutes into the air his shaggy black hair sways to the music on a CD player. Turning on my PC, I try to focus on the ton of work to finish before the battery dies.
That’s it for today! Tune in for part two of the story next Wednesday!
To your HAPPY personal stories as well, Christine Comaford
