WHO SALLY MORSE 59 / Director of Creative Services / Hunter Douglas Window Fashions
WHY I’M FLYING I’m headed to Regina, in Saskatchewan, to do charity events for the Ronald McDonald House and a women’s shelter. I put on an interior design seminar called “The 10 Steps to the Perfect Room,” and the proceeds go to the charities.
HOW I SILENCE CHATTY SEATMATES The more work I get done on the plane, the less I have to do later. So if my seatmate wants to talk and I need to do some writing, I tell them I work for one of those companies that sells housewares door-to-door. They never want to talk after that.
PREFLIGHT RITUAL I always stop by Garrett Popcorn in O’Hare’s Terminal 1 and get a bag of the Garrett Mix (caramel corn mixed with cheesy corn). It’s kind of an indulgence. That and getting frisked by security! I’ve had both knees replaced with titanium, so I always buzz. There’s a TSA agent in California who got further with me in three minutes than my husband did in eight dates!
