OK, today is my BD, yea! But I loathe getting another year older. I thought of getting on a AA flight next Friday to fly CLE-ORD-NRT for $700ai. BF talked me out of it. It would just be for a weekend trip. I would return on Feb. 21st. Have I lost my mind? I think the deal is probably gone now. He could not go d/t his teaching schedule at the university. It would be in coach. I have no status with AA, so no u/g possible. I get these updates from daily emails from airfarewatchdog; that is where I saw the CLE-ORD-NRT deal. The next time I could get away is end of March, where I have a weeks vacation lined up as I applied for a special MRC DHS training, but was not selected. I need more experience in disaster training. There have been no opportunities for trainings here. Thank you for your time. At least I'm getting a nice dinner tonight, and red velvet cake!
