Tiny Asian thing, Burberry coat, sparkling water, low-calorie popcorn. Slathered in perfume. Oblivious.

Mrs. Curvalicious, knees parallel, fetchin' in black jeans. Smiles from the window seat, flirty.

My flight attendant friend, dark-haired and lithe, ducks into my row, waiting out the boarding line. Mimes the gesture of sitting in my lap, flirty.
