On board American Airlines back to LA today, a flight attendant saw Ted looking at the back of R/S/L and stopped to look at it.
Her: Wow, that looks interesting. Can’t wait till I finish graduate school to start recreational reading again.
Me: What are you studying in graduate school?
Flight attendant: Art History! I absolutely love it. (pause, smile, shrug) It was my mid-life crisis. (She smiles and rushes back to the first class cabin.) Back in a minute with a pen to write the title down!
Ted and me (simultaneously): We have got to give her this book! She will love this book!
(After a while the lady returns, we learn her name, give her the book, explain that I wrote it, etc.)
Katie: Yeah, after 9-11 I realized I had to change my life. So I took some time off to go work in Ghana. I got so much more out of it than I could possibly have given….
I felt like I was listening to Me, except with different circumstances. I hope Katie writes and tells me more about them!
