At least he'll have legroom and free drinks as he watches the baby

D called today with the news that his flight got ticketed and he managed to use his miles to upgrade to First Class (note the capitals--first class doesn't look as good as First Class) so he'll be joining us "up front" on our trip to Hawaii next week. I had already booked my First Class ticket on miles (his miles--that's why I married him) but his ticket is courtesy of the federal government and thus requires ticketing 20 minutes before departure and that he be seated in the middle seat on the last row right next to the lav.

After I booked my ticket, he said, "You booked a First Class ticket on my miles? You didn't even try for a Business Class seat? You went right to First? Was Economy available?" Apparently his memory is short regarding our last flight with The Boy. I'm going to need all the free cocktails I can get and please keep them coming.

I was going to feel so bad for him if he was stuck in peasant class with the baby while I was sipping cham-pag-ne in First Class. Now we get to be one big happy family. However this has presented me with a dilemma. If my husband is sitting beside me on the plane, it forecloses all hope that this man will be sitting beside me in 1B. Damn.

Even if he is like that won't stop the oggling. If your lucky he won't have his wife in tow.

Well, maybe he'll be across the aisle and you'll be able to look at him the whole time. Have fun..

Even "peasant class" would be OK for a flight to Hawaii! Have a great trip and the fun time there!

Jesus Pete, I'd ride in the cargo hold in order to arrive in HI. Or maybe...I'll put the KIDS in the cargo hold and get a first class seat for myself...
Oh yeah...now we're cookin' with gas.

I would think keeping the hubby in peasant class would be a nice, refreshing change of scenery. Or at least that's what I'd want to do with mine. Then again, I'd have to listen to him bitch about how he's too tall for peasant class and that he can't get comfortable because he's a behemoth. But still, for champagne and movie stars ... totally worth it.
