Fly the Friendly Skies... On Our Timeline Only, Please

I was recently handed a stack of mail that is still being delivered to my mother's house. Among these items were several mailings from Delta SkyMiles, one of which informed me that I had better hurry and use my SkyMiles, because they were expiring at the end of last December.

Well, that's great, cause I opened the piece of mail like a month ago.

So today, I finally got around to sending a letter of thanks to Delta, which went like this:

Dear SkyMiles,

Thank you for taking my sky miles away at the end of December 2006. I guess they must have been getting moldy or something, so I'm glad you were looking out for me. I really appreciate it. So much so, that I think I will try NOT to fly with you as much as possible.


Maybe Delta saw Punch Drunk Love and thought that too many people might try to amass SkyMiles as a form of currency, much to their ultimate ruin, thus they decided to instill an expiry date on the miles.

Way to go, Delta. Glad I flew to Germany and back twice and have nothing to show for it. Well, except all those great memories and photos. I guess in the end no one can take that away.
