19. The Flight Attendant

The phone rang at 4am.   
“Crew Desk.  We have your assignment.”
Paris, please be Paris.  Or Sydney, oh, God, Sydney.  Early calls meant international trips. 
“Flight 1382.  L.A. to Detroit.  Layover 20 hours.  Have a safe flight.”

33 words, starting with "The phone rang at 4am."


  1. DANGITALL!!! That would be a letdown.

    good piece :)

  2. Oh so disappointing. Yet I'm laughing. :-)

  3. Nothing like crashing hopes at 4am. Nice!

  6. This was fun. And different. Detroit definitely can't compare to Sydney and Paris.

  7. Doh! Sucks to be awaken at 4 just to hear that. Fun entry.
