Last night we had just one customer in First, a well-known Indian film actor named Mammootty. All the Indian crew members flocked to the front to meet him, and passengers from other cabins begged to meet him as well. I didn't know who he was (I called him "Mr. Mammootty" all night, but seems he's just "Mammootty"), but he was super charming. Now I come home and google him, and learn he is involved with more charities than I have digits, and he's played over 300 lead roles.

This is a digicam picture of a polaroid, taken after he'd just woken up and I'd been up all night - and was talking. Please remind me not to talk while my picture is being taken.
