Always a pleasure to come to this lounge. A rarity lately as I no longer live here.
I actually know the young lady checking me in – an ex-collegue from a previous position.
I head straight for the bar before I sit down and order a dirty Martini. Nice. Soon after I find a seat a waitress comes over and asks if I would like another. I go for an Espresso Martini this time. Very nice.
I contemplate a shower but after internal deliberation decide I can’t be bothered. The flight is only 2.5 hours. I’ll survive.
