Moments before boarding, I heard my name called on the loudspeaker. You all know I hate having my name announced in public. So I walked up to the desk and the woman hands me a new ticket and says, You win. She needed my seat for someone else and so she sent me 15 rows forward into economy plus. That seems to mean more leg room. I was hoping for first class, and just for that thought, I felt my first kick from the two year old behind me. And a woman in a red Christmas sweater is now beside me shoving her bag-o-food into the pocket along with her Christmas cards. She seems to have problems keeping her elbows to herself. And the kid behind me said something about he might feel like throwing up. Oh, there goes the table. And another kick.

Did I really win?
