9/11 I will never forget

My thoughts go out to everyone who was effected by this tradgic day. I was a flight attendant at the time working out of Boston that morning. After take off the captain informed  me we had to do an immediate emergancy landing, our landing gear was...

What's Up Doc

I have always been a little bit of a drama queen. If it was slightly chilly, I’d stiffen all my limbs and claim to be frozen still. If I saw a daddy long legs spider I claimed it was definitely a black widow or tarantula. Airplanes at night were UFOs,...

UPCHUCK

I meet the men of my life out of sheer chance, randomly when I least expect it. I like the spontaneity and vulnerableness of it all. After living in the city for almost eight years I had a track record for meeting some of the most interesting men, and...

Kidnapped

There have been a few finer points in my life, graduating high school, getting baptized, potty trained, track and field awards, leaving Pennsylvania for New York City, starting an airline, but being kidnapped was not one of them. This episode was...

Life in the open lane

  Everyone has dreams of what they want to be when they grow up, a doctor, veterinarian, beautician, actor, policeman, and some lucky children become their childhood dream after they graduate high school. The problem with me was I changed my mind as...

Cali for my kidney

How many times have you heard people say, ‘I would give my arm to meet Madonna, I would give my first born for that sports car, I would give up my fake tits to win the lottery,’ well fake tits you can buy again, but it seems when people want something...

I object

Some things I miss about New York City

Oh New York, New York. It was like a dream, that I had the chance to live there for 12 years, all my twenties. At the age of 10 I went to New York in the 80's it was quite different back then, and I said Mom someday I'm moving to New York City. She...

Mr. Softee

Mr. Softee Remember your favorite sound in elementary school? If it wasn’t the end of the day school bell, I’d bet my whole shoe collection guessing it was the sweet and happy melody of the ice cream man’s truck. Who doesn’t love the ice cream man? I...

Pura Vida

It's been almost a year since I was in Costa Rica. This might be my favorite place on earth, and I was a flight attendant for years. Living in New York City was exciting and spontanious, Rome was surreal, Barcelona the beaches and architecture amazed...

Over Poured and Over heard ... Bar Quotes

“I’m in between getting married to you and getting another drink. Any order works, and that ain’t the alchohal talking, but I did have 8 apple martinis with 2 Chivas’s squeezed in.” “I don’t have patience.”  “If you had patients you’d be a doctor....
