The Trip Home
By KATHLEEN W. REDMAN
  

1     Mr. Sutton had been in Sri Lanka for three weeks. He had been visiting his daughter. She worked in a school there. Now it was time for him to go home.
 
2     Mr. Sutton called the reservations clerk at the airport.
 
3     "Hello. This is Nimali with Eastern Airlines. How many I help you?" the friendly clerk asked.
 
4     "I need to make a reservation from Colombo to Boston, Massachusetts. That is Logan Airport."
 
5     "Yes, sir. We have several flights to Logan. What day are you planning to leave?"
 
6     "The day doesn't matter, but I would like to leave this week."
 
7     "What time of day would you like to fly, sir?"
 
8     "I would like to leave in the morning if I can."
