As soon as I got on the plane I noticed the changes. More seats. Less standing room. It was tight. I put my carry-on in the compartment above the wrong way. A fellow passenger corrected it. In other words, things were different here from the last time I took a flight. When I got in my seat and turned on the screen monitor, it welcomed me by my name and asked if i wanted to sync my iPhone to the screen Apparently I could now control my movies and Direct TV via my smart phone. No thanks. I wasn’t

It was excruciatingly tight. I had to wear my mask for the full three hour flight. The free snacks were tiny. Using the restroom caused me to be jealous of midgets. Why did I do this to myself?

Then I remembered. The sun. I’d be seeing and feeling the warm weather sun soon enough.
