Everyone writes about Paris, so I couldn’t resist putting together my own set of stories, inspired by an anniversary trip gone slightly awry. We took off from Boston, ready for a few days in the city of lights when our plane was diverted to Gander, Newfoundland because of mechanical problems. We were to arrive at 7:30am; we climbed into bed in our hotel room at 1:30am the next morning. The chatty young woman is drawn from the experience, but that’s where the true story ends and the made-up story of Madolyn and her unfortunate love affair begins.

I characterize the rest as “Odd and Unusual,” in that I enjoy writing about the unexpected–from “Aunt Agnes” based on a friend’s experience with her relative (slightly embellished) to “In the Early Days” when everything, literally, falls apart.
