Visualize the scene.
Author sits on airplane, jetting off to a work assignment. Flight attendant strolls by:
FA: What can I get ya to drink?
AU: I’d love a ginger ale!
FA: I’d love to bring ya one.
Simple exchange, right?
I so appreciated that she picked up the word “love.” Volleyed it back at me. Had fun with it. Her response conveyed a sense of delight in her professional role, to boot. Yes, this flight attendant was a language-cue-pick-up artist!
So simple. So energizing.
