Kathryn has been wearing me down for the past week, trying to get me to upgrade to business class on the leg to Montevideo. After witnessing considerable stompy-footing at the airport, I caved. The good news is, with an international business-class boarding pass, we can use the first-class lounge. Just think, if I order only 80 more free Budweisers between now and boarding time, it’ll be like the upgrade paid for itself!
One intangible benefit: the riff-raff have to watch 90% fake CNN in the waiting area, while we get 70% fake Fox News. It’s nice to be grateful for the small things.
