Some of you know that my wife, Fran, is a flight attendant for United Airlines. In the past few months, she has started flying international trips, including Sydney, Shanghai, and Paris. My birthday was coming up this past weekend, and Fran made the suggestion that I should come on her work trip to Paris so that we could celebrate my birthday in France. Not a bad idea, even if it was a lot of travel for just two days in Paris. Anyway, we went. We did a lot of walking around town the first day, and had a great dinner together near the Bastille. We also talked about trying to get tickets to the French Open, which was taking place during our time there. Sure enough, I was able to get one ticket for Sunday, and watched 3 different matches. It was super cool.
