“Boarding pass please, sir.” I held out my hand waiting for the document while hoping that my jealousy was hidden from my voice and my face. I was yet to experience a trip to anywhere on an aeroplane and that dream seemed to be slipping further and further away.
I had always wanted to be an air stewardess, flying everywhere around the globe and enjoying my time visiting all these new places.
In actuality, I had never applied because I had met the man of my dreams, got married, and had a family. Now I was always too busy to take a flight.
Forcing myself to look up when I had the document in my hands I gave a very fake smile. “Thank you. Enjoy your trip, I thank you for choosing British Airways.”
My greatest regret was that I could have chosen to fly before I had settled down.
