Flying American Airlines from the Mayborn Literary Nonfiction Conference 2012

Waiting in the Dallas airport, we heard Perry’s name called. When he returned from the American Airlines desk, he told me, “The bad news is we were bumped from our exit row seats. The good news is we were put into first class.”

We were served a wonderful meal in our comfy seats – moist baked chicken, sweet potatoes with a creamy sauce, and a fresh salad with artichokes, black olives, tomatoes, and mushrooms. The peanut butter cheese cake was yummy! My Pretty Pink cup wrap kept my diet coke icy cold.

After eating our meal, Perry sipped a second mug of hot coffee covered with a Kup Kap while he read on his Kindle.

I love taking photos out the plane window!
