Oblivion

Do you happen to know the way out of this heartbreak town?
Are there any cheap flights to Oblivion?
Yes, please book me on the red eye tonight...
I will fit right in.
  
This weekend we are giving you three variations on a prompt.  We need you to give us 33 words back, and 2 of those words must be either "cheap flights," "sandwiched in" or "spectacularly clean."  This weekend, your piece must also be non-fiction (poetry or prose).  And yes, we reserve the right to call your mothers and former lovers to ask for verification on your tales.
