I sat at the airport, waiting to board Virgin Airlines flight 451 traveling non-stop to my sunny destination … to a friend’s wedding. I exhaled. It had been too long since I had been on a real vacation. All my vacation days seem to be designated to other people’s weddings. In the terminal, I replayed the fantasy I’ve always had that one lucky time in my life I would end up seated next to a hot man on a plane, all the planets would align, and we would join the illustrious Mile-High Club.

The other day a friend sent me a link to an item on the Madewell site. “Weren’t these the shorts you wanted? They went on sale and are only $11!” Tempting, but I told her I was abstaining from all fashion purchases at the moment. “I’m on a fashion diet,” I said.
