Alone in Qatar

Qatar is one of those little financial powerhouses in the middle east that has no shortage of the accoutrements of fine living. This is the Qatar Airlines terminal, where I was practically alone except for an army of servants, none of whom were from Qatar. While on the flight, I got this Qatar Airlines sleeping-shirt that was long-sleeved and just about one of the nicest shirts I've ever gotten. My family makes fun of me because I wear it all the time around the house at night. It's soft, fits perfect, and, did I mention it's soft? One time, our maid washed it and misplaced it for a few weeks. I was lost without it... I kept asking everyone, "Where's my Qatar Airlines shirt!" They thought I was crazy... But now, it's back in my control and everything is okay.
