Take off

Off to a good start, my flight delayed by only half an hour.  Was trying to decide if it’s a stupid idea to stand in line to board the plane before the announcement or just stay put, everyone seems to like the idea of waiting in line.  Didn’t everyone check in, just like cattle, herding to our seats?  I’m flying Air France “ooh la la” for the first time, dinner menus included, what?!  I’m in economy…champagne to start, and its the good stuff?!  A lovely wild rice pilaf with squash, grilled chicken in a white wine sauce, dessert and a cheese selection and would I like a brandy?! I’m sold! Gotta say, Air France kicks Air Canada’s butt, seriously, even the movie selection is fantastique!  It’s a necessity when you’re flying for over 9 hours.  My movie reviews, whether you like it or not,  “Allied” Brad Pitt movie, not usually a fan of his but man he killed it! Next, “Belle de jour,” yes, there seems to be a French theme, coincidence, perhaps? Catherine Deneuve, timeless beauty, the movie was ok, the book was better, yep, you heard correct, it was “one” of the books I actually read in my book club, and it was probably due to the sexual content.  My third and final movie, “Women of the 20th Century”, with Annette Benning, great movie, a new favourite, thanks to @ Michele Hall for the recommendation.    Listening to “the Weekend, Starboy”, how have I not listened to this before?  Must be on my second wind, can’t sit still in my seat, “Reminder”, “Rockin”, seems everyone around me is either sleeping or watching their screen.  I’m feeling a seat dance coming on, don’t worry, I didn’t.  What’s this, ice-cream sandwiches?  I’ll pass, still full from the cheese plate. Three more hours until Paris, I hope my driver is there waiting for me.  Hmmm, I wonder what they’re serving for breakfast?
