I'm on the last leg of my flight to my hometown of Durango, Colorado for my 30-year high school reunion. I'm also doing a reading of my children's book at the local bookstore on Saturday.
I met two toddlers at the airport gate during the layover in Denver. I lent the littlest one a copy of my book to read on the plane. We boarded, and they went with their mom to the back of the plane and I took my seat near the front. Then right before takeoff the flight attendant said she needed two volunteers from the front of the plane to sit in the back. I practically bolted from my seat and sprinted to the back of the plane, where I've taken my seat across from the toddlers. Their mom is reading my book to them.
