Because we got up late; because we didn't have time to grab breakfast before our flight; because we couldn't get the bulkhead; and just because I wanted to... I upgraded Rick and I to first class for the first leg of our trip. Just because.
I've flown first class before but Rick has not. And guess what? Rick liked it.
After having just spent five hours being waited on hand and foot, having food and beverages brought to him at his whim, having little warm washcloths to clean up with and having his own personal flight attendant to tell his stories to, Rick proudly announced, "I like this. Let's always fly this way."
Dream on, Pal.
