I haven’t written a random thought post in awhile but there have been some floating around in my head for a week or two, just begging to be shared with the world. And now I can’t hold them in any longer… the time has come for me to let one loose on all of you. Hmm… that’s actually very similar to what I tell my Lady Friend right before breaking wind.
If all goes well the Lady Friend and I are taking a vacation this winter – hopefully in February. I love flying because just about every time I do I am going somewhere fun. Luckily I rarely have to travel for work so anytime I’m getting on a plane it’s somewhere I am CHOOSING to go.
But before you get on the plane, there are those anxious moments when you’re about to start your vacation. You are sitting at the airport, waiting at the gate for them to call your row to board the plane. On our next trip, while we are sitting there at the gate surrounded by other people starting their vacations I will unleash something upon those unsuspecting travelers.
No, not break wind. I’m going to break into song. Not just any song.. an appropriate song. Time For Me To Fly by REO Speedwagon.
I may even throw on a nice big white dude afro wig like REO’s Kevin Cronin was sporting in this video. Though unfortunately, his was not a wig. This outburst in the airport terminal will make a couple people laugh. It will also irritate a few people. And then there will be those who are just plain frightened by this singing nutcase, knowing they are sharing a flight with him.
And it’s one of THOSE people who I hope I get seated next to because I’ll continue humming the song softly to myself for the entire flight. Or at least until the Lady Friend gets pissed and elbows me in the ribs. Who am I kidding, she’ll probably do that before we even board.
On a different topic… have you been to my new website www.101Apocalypse.com? Please do! If you haven’t heard, I wrote a nonfiction humor book and it’s featured over there – I have a few excerpts from the book posted now. I personally think it’s pretty funny and I’d love it for you to follow me on Twitter: @101Apocalypse and Facebook. And yes, that IS me. I published under my REAL NAME! I’m out of the anonymous blog closet!
