A Reporter’s Life

From today’s 2:22am Pool Report, on the plane from Hawaii to D.C.:0

    We had scrambled eggs and cheese for our first meal, with pieces of corned beef-like meat in thick gravy over toast, Served with, what else? Hawaiian Punch.

    The doctor clearly does not consult with the dietician.

    For an encore, we had steak, cooked medium rare (perfect) and boiled shrimp (nice), scallops (chewy) in a creamy sauce (thick), mashed taters with red skins (divine), with a garden salad (crisp), for dinner. Cherry chocolate cake (get me a dentist) for dessert.

    We had movies. We had basketball. We had a ball, all in all.

    We had a lot of turbulence early in the flight and not much later.
