Tip for flying...

When the flight attendant offers you a newspaper, perhaps say no. Particularly if you know there was a big plane crash the day before.

Because there's nothing worse than having jiggly nerves anyway, then opening up a screaming tabloid like The Daily Mail to see a photo of a burnt out 737 in vivid colour. And worse is going this when you're sitting on a plane 40,000 feet in the air.

I so know it is not funny but I snickered at your take on this.

So did I!

enid feels very sympathetic, even though hardly any planes crash these days - only one in ten or so, and then only on long haul flights. fingers crossed!

I'm laughing - but only in sympathy of your pain. (snort)

That IS scary.

Vicki said...

I mean not really funny but then again it is.

You understand. =)

Going overseas on a plane is bad enough as I am a clostraphobic (I think that's how you spell it)

Having just been on a domestic flight (pics posted yesteday), I truly understand your pain. I have 7 days before I have to board another one and I always refuse to watch the tube or read the papers 12 hours prior.
Sorry I've not been visiting lately but my trip turned into a little more than I bargained for.

It could have been worse.

Dear all. Yes I was on the plane when I read this. And my nerves are never fully steeled when I'm flying in the FSU, even if it's on a reputable airline like British Airways (I'm convinced they send their shitty aircraft to Kyiv). Anyway, I snapped the paper shut and thought lots of happy thoughts....
