LAG, by Michael Sage Ricci
Here’s the final word, darlings:
6:15 AM at any major airport is distinctly unglamorous.
I mean really, it’s way too early to be herded through security checkpoints, mad cows in a pen awaiting approval. Now that the world lives in constant fear, security is paramount and I had to sacrifice my beauty sleep to catch my flight on time. Protection has a cost, darlings. Like most economies, the low man on the totem pole is the one that pays the price.
