I board and take my seat in business class. Row behind me I see the wipe-out kid and his mom. Grandma walks up and says: "they had a mix up with the seats, I'm all the way in the back". The mom just shrugs. Grandma is crestfallen and drags her carry-on to coach. Alone. For the next 8 hours. Meanwhile the damned kid is screaming out blast off count downs. Good thing Delta passes out ear plugs.
On a lighter side, the menu looks good. Here's what I will have:
Moroccan crab salad
Cream of asparagus soup
Grilled beef tenderloin and shrimp scampi (with lemon risotto and sauted zucchini and squash)
Fruit, cheese and a vanilla ice cream sundae
I will probably hit a couple of double Bailey's on the rocks and snore it up all the way to Tegel. Good thing Delta passes out ear plugs.
