Now, before everyone accuses me of being a perv, there are very legitimate reasons why sitting next to the pretty girl is the "home run" of any business trip:
- First, they are pretty small, so they don't hog up the armrest with their rolls of belly fat and violate your personal space with their arm/meatbags.
- Second, they smell nice, which sure beats sitting next to the Eurotrash kid who doesn't believe in deodorant and just got off a nine-hour flight from Amsterdam.
- Third, they have social skills, but aren't (usually) rude. They will typically just mind their own business (great if you need to get work done on a flight) but are also pretty friendly (if you feel chatty) provided don't make an ass of yourself trying to hit on them.
Oh, plus, I got a convertible when I picked up my rental car. And it's supposed to be sunny and mid-70's whiel I'm here. Good thing I brought sunscreen for my head!
* Where I am *this* close to being a Gold member. Early boarding privileges - woo!
** Number of people needing to pee during the flight? Six.
