It’s that time again. The time when an airline sends us notice that we are about to lose our airline miles because of inactivity, so they are offering us the opportunity to cash in soon-to-expire miles for magazine subscriptions. The list of magazines we get to choose from is staggering. Where to begin, where to begin…
I was going to start with Cigar Aficionado, but my husband pointed out that, unless I’m planning on taking up cigar smoking, I might not find anything interesting in that monthly. On the contrary, I say. I would love to see what cigar smokers find so fascinating that it takes up an entire magazine, month after month.
Another intriguing offer is called Fast Company. Hmmmm…I’m wondering how fast this company is and if someone my age could possibly keep up. People en Espanol might help me practice my Spanish, but since I don’t care to read about those people in English, why would I want to struggle to read about them in Spanish?
Ah, here’s one made just for me: Western Horseman. Yes, maybe I do live in Virginia and even the thought of riding a bike again scares me, but I can romanticize, can’t I? Conde Nast Traveler is another of the choices, but if I was a real traveler, why would I have unused airline miles that are about to expire?
Sigh. Why don’t they ever have something like Better Homes and Gardens or Cooking Light? I’d even welcome a yoga magazine. I know I could decline, but I hate to waste those miles. That’s why I have Money, Entrepreneur, and Wine Spectator on my coffee table. Hey, they look good when we have company.
