Looking for A-1
I can't leave the computer for fear of being distracted from my quest to check in for our flight tomorrow at precisely the stroke of 7 am. I realize it is not likely that I'll get A-1 because of Southwest's new "business select" that automatically gives you a high number for 300 bucks more, and then there's all the people who might be already checked in if our flight is a continuation from Manchester or Pittsburgh or someplace, but yet, here I sit, watching the seconds tick by to avoid the possibility that my family might not be able to sit together. Gone are the days when the traveling circus of babies, strollers and carseats got us the coveted pre-board status. Now we're on our own. So I wait...less than two minutes to go. It's like a game now-the slot machine of modern air travel. What will I get? Okay, it's within a minute so I'm going to try on the chance that their clock is different from mine...And it works! I got in at 6:59:36 for numbers A-24 through A-29. Okay, I can go about my day now. Thanks for waiting with me.
