flight attendant threw a blanket at me

Can I say "When I asked for a blanket nicely, a flight attendant literally threw a blanket at me."?

This is about an imaginary situation:

"I had a horrible experience with XYZ Airlines. When I asked for a blanket nicely, a flight attendant literally threw a blanket at me."

I want to create a sentence that expressed how the flight attendant threw a blanket like a ball which was very surprising, so I used "literally" and "threw at" but not sure if they work.

If the sentence sounds strange, could you tell me how you would put it as a native speaker?

Thank you.

    Sounds fine to be, and better for me if you use "one" the second time you mention "blanket" -- and since it's a specific flight attendant, I would use "the":

    When I asked for a blanket nicely, the flight attendant literally threw one at me.
