Excerpt from “Handcuffs and a Pyramid of Satin”:
Flight from Reality
Room 222 was a hilarious high school sitcom back in the early 1970’s. But there was nothing at all funny about the series of twos in Kelly Cavenaugh’s life. Kelly thought about her current situation and breathed a pathetic sigh as she sat waiting in the airport for her connecting flight. She had been married for exactly two years, two months, and two days and already she knew she’d married the wrong man.
Kelly slid over on the blue attached seats in the airport waiting area to make room for a frazzled mother to fit in with her three active kids. Kelly couldn’t help but smile as the head of the smallest child bumped her elbow. The little girl glanced at her mother’s stern face and immediately burst into tears.
“I’m so sorry,” said the mother. “Please excuse her. I’m trying to keep them still.”
“No problem,” said Kelly, rummaging through her purse for a tissue to catch the drops of coffee dribbling down her cup. Thank goodness the lid hadn’t come off, she thought. Hot coffee would have splashed all over this child’s face. Once the mother had the kids momentarily settled and sharing a pack of fruit Mentos, Kelly returned to her thoughts.
