I have a good story I think. This just happened a couple of days ago: I had been on a month long trip to South America by myself, for which I am most grateful, but flying is hell as I imagine most of you know. I was feeling very lonely due to a whole day spent in airports and seeing all the happy couples and self absorbed people and it was getting to me. I was just getting seated on the last flight and started to think how nice it would be if the person seated next to me could be a handsome interesting man who would speak English, as my Spanish isn't so great. The entire plane filled up but for one seat--the one next to me. They were getting ready to close the door and one of the flight attendants said, "Wait, there's one more seat." Yep, you got it--he was a handsome, interesting, man who knew English and he was only too happy to talk to me the entire flight and he was even a little flirty and seemed attracted to me. Then I met his mother and she just loved me and I thought she was great, tho she only knew Portuguese.

Now here's where things get tricky with gratitude and the LOA: right after they left I started to have these negative thoughts like "Oh he's probably a player," or "maybe he's just looking for a wife in the states so he can immigrate," and so on. Not to mention that he lives in Brazil and we couldn't date anyway. Fortunately I caught myself and put a stop to those thoughts, because it occurred to me that the universe had delivered up exactly what I'd asked for. All I wanted was someone to entertain me for a couple of hours and lift me out of my funk and that is exactly what happened. I actually got a little more than I asked for because he made me feel attractive on a day when I was feeling very unsexy (I dress for comfort, not fashion, when I fly). So there you have it--the most perfect scenario for a LOA in action and I finally learned how to ask. I essentially put in my order and got exactly what I'd asked for and now I have a better idea of how to do it.
