To the Nice and Handsome Man in 12C
Yes, after I shook your hand and we said goodbye, I was indeed able to catch my flight home. Turns out my flight wasn't listed correctly on the airport information screens -- it didn't actually leave until 5:25pm, so I was the last one to board. Whew!
I wish you much joy and success in your personal "Manhattan," and I want you to know that I was genuinely impressed with your wit, your charm, and your smooth Matthew McConaghey-esque Southern-tinged accent. Thanks for making me feel pretty, smart, and special during our short flight. It does wonders for a girl's ego. Thanks for noticing my cute (but impractical for dashing through overcrowded airports) Mary Janes.
Mostly, however, thanks for proving to me that I was right about one important thing: there isn't just ONE person out there for everyone, just ONE singular soul who can make you feel happy and complete. I am fortunate that I have already found one of the world's people who can make me feel that way, my darling husband T, the man I will always share my life with. Although I hardly knew you, Mr. 12C ("the Exit Row Guy" -- indeed, we never even exchanged names), I am nearly certain that you were another possibility for my life. I am glad that I met you. I wouldn't change my current life for the world, but it is fun to get a tiny glimpse at one road not taken.
