When last we parted, all was happy and good. Flights for 4 people were booked to Honolulu. Then life, as it does, got in the way.
Jay went back to New York for a too-good-to-pass-up film job. That’s right – I am now in Dallas alone. *cue torrential tears*
That was a whole other wrenching experience, but it also had consequences for this planned trip.
“So no Hawaii trip?” “I can’t.” Crap.
I called Connexions Loyalty (the travel agency Citi uses to book flights with ThankYou points) to ask if I could transfer the ticket to my little brother. I knew it would be a long shot, but worth trying.
The best they could do was cancel the ticket and give Jay the credit – no transferring, no name-changing. Oh, and there would be a $200 fee to redeem the credit. That stung, but at least part of the ticket will be put toward eventual travel.
Then I thought, why not take my little brother anyway?
