The just-right pillow 195/365

I’m heading out to crew my friend and client at Western States. Right now, though, all I can think about is how much I want the Southwest flight attendants to bring me my ginger ale. They passed out the peanuts and pretzels ten minutes ago when I was only moderately thirsty. I ate them because I was also moderately hungry. And now, I am [...]

Otherwise, I’m on 5am flights on Monday mornings that don’t get me back to San Antonio until noon, which just doesn’t work when there’s a 10 year-old and 4 year-old who are out of school for the summer waiting in San Antonio.
