Nervous Flyer

Monday, January 07, 2013

I am a very nervous flyer. During a trip from California to Indiana, it didn't help that my connecting flight from Denver was delayed twice because of mechanical problems. Then, after we were aloft, I noticed the lights began flickering. I mentioned this to a flight attendant.

"I'll take care of it," she said. Moments later the lights went out. Clearly she'd solved the problem by turning off the lights.

A passenger across the aisle who had been listening leaned over and said, "Whatever you do, please don't ask about the engines."

    I'm also flying today and I realize I tend to get stressed preparing to go. On the plane I am ok. I usually doze during take-off but a day in the airport is like being confined to prison.

My trip to the store

Sunday, January 06, 2013

There was a bit of confusion at Fred Meyers this morning. When I was ready to pay for my groceries, the cashier said, "Strip down facing me."
Making a mental note to complain to my congressman about Homeland Security running amok, I did just as she had instructed.
When the hysterical shrieking and alarms finally subsided, I found out that she was referring to my credit card.
I have been asked to shop elsewhere in the future. They need to make their instructions to us seniors a little clearer!

    Probably not just "seniors" - those with ADD, constantly multi-tasking with the brain, or just not paying attention could also be prone to this kind of thing!

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

A woman was waiting in the checkout line at a shopping center. Her arms were laden with a mop and broom and other cleaning supplies. By her hard glances and deep sighs, it was obvious she was in hurry and not a happy camper about the slowness of the line.

When the cashier called for a price check on a box of soap, the woman remarked indignantly, "Well, I'll be lucky to get out of here and home before Christmas!"

"Don't worry, ma'am," replied the clerk. "With a good tail wind and that brand new broom you have there, you'll be home in no time."

New Year's Eve Party

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

The New Year's Eve party had turned into a marathon with numerous guests coming and going. At one point, a man knocked on the door, was greeted heartily though no one knew who he was, and was led to the bar in the basement. He sat there happily for about an hour before a strange light dawned on his face.

"You know," he confided to his host, "I wasn't even invited to this party. I just came over to tell you that some of your guests' cars are blocking my driveway. My wife's been sitting out in the car waiting for me to get them moved."

    My mother used to make fruit cake every year, then soak it in brandy for a year before we ate it. I actually liked it.

    Oh NO my beloved fruitcake, & I am not joking I love it. There is one thing I love NO ONE will touch it that I personally know, so I can leave it out in the open without any one taking a crumb of it!!! That is always one of my Christmas presents, & when I open it all eyes are on me I squeal with delight, & everyone else is scrounging up their face at me
