    I got to fly first class a few times when I had a client in DC and it was awesome. I am a terrible flier. I hate to fly (fiery ball of death) but if I have to fly…then first class makes it easier. Probably won’t fly first class ever again, though. I’m not paying for it.

    Real silverware! That’s awesome! Your eldest child has got some serious class. 🙂

    We used to fly business class all the time when I was a kid. I can’t help but be a bit envious of my younger self for having that privilege. I miss the real silverware and the tiny salt and pepper shakers…and having actual meals to use them on.

    I really enjoyed this meld of authentic and tongue-in-cheek! The “riffraff,” hahaha.

    I flew first class, once, when I was much younger, home from vacation. When I got home, my brother called me Zsa-Zsa for a week!

    **Snort** – I keep telling myself that the next time we go to visit my MIL in the UK, I’ll pay dearly for one of those business-class fancy seats that turn into an actual BED so I might get some sleep on that red-eye, but somehow 3X the expense (last time I checked it was about $3K for business class vs about $900 for coach flight) convinces me that $4K in savings will console me for 2 nights of lost sleep!!!
    (& as I recall I’ve flown 1st class exactly TWICE over almost 30 yrs of adult air travel…)

    Nope. I know my place – cattle class all the way, baby!

    But it sounds like you had a FABULOUS experience and I’m so happy for you. And your grandkids are SOOOOO CUTE!

    How absolutely exciting! I suspect I will never fly first class, but perhaps one day I will have a daughter to surprise me like that too 🙂

    I love the way you told your story, and I really want to yell at Snooty McSeatmate for being well…obnoxious. 🙂

If you don't comment, then I'm just talking to myself -- and I do too much of that already.
