“Please sit back, relax, and enjoy this short thirty minute flight to Detroit. Sir, please turn that cell phone off.” Those were the last words I heard before we jetted down the runway and began to lift off. As the wheels of the plane left the pavement, I could hear them retract underneath for a twenty minute nap until we began our initial descent into Detroit. Usually, I fall asleep right away and even sleep through the five course peanut dinner, but this day, I stayed awake and looked out the window.
