Going Back

PHOTO PROMPT © Na’ama Yehuda

Sitting in a plane seat for hours, inactive and restless, was difficult for Tate. It reminded her of high school and the ongoing drone of the teachers’ voices. The Haagen-Dazs, however, made her think of sunny days with her girlfriends. As each scoop melted in her mouth, thoughts of their antics and conversations swirled in her mind. Sighing, she savoured the last mouthful. She needed to get back together with them. They had been her rock and she had been drifting along aimlessly since her departure. The plane was taking her home and bringing her closer to her people.

        1. It was the first time for me to fly with them, too. 🙂
          Apparently they are quite well-known but I wasn’t aware they even existed until we were searching for flights from NY to Thailand and this direct flight from NYC to Hong Kong was available through them. I checked them out, and I’ll fly again with them. (they can even ‘sponsor’ me now that I’m giving them free publicity … ;))


  1. I like your take on the prompt, just using it as a prop for the real message about the love and support of friends. I hope Tate rebuilds the friendships.


  2. Sweet! As for the ice-cream, it was offered to all (economy and premium-economy — donnow about the business class because I wasn’t sitting in THAT … ;)) on the Cathay-Pacific flight I took this photo on. 🙂
