72. Bodies Make Great Padding
I fly on a regional plane in which there is a rear jumpseat at the back, surrounded by two passengers on the left and two on the right.
I am squished right in the middle. Some guy was busting my balls about being in the back, and he was talking smack. My response?
“If the plane goes down, I will be surrounded by four squishy bodies and probably walk away. That’s why I am here, in the back, in the middle, in this tiny seat. Bodies make GREAT padding.”
The look of silence on his face was priceless.
