Flight plan...

We just bought plane tickets for a trip we are planning to Orlando. The kids are all very excited because (except for Dori) they have never flown. They have been asking questions trying to figure out how it will all work. Pete wanted to know if it was true that your ears can pop while you are in a plane. Pepper and I explained that yes they can pop, but that it doesn’t really hurt and you can chew gum to help keep it from happening. He thought about this for a few minutes then asked, “So does the pilot come on the speaker and tell you when to start chewing gum?”

As we were driving to baseball, Dill asked us if the flight attendant would pass out parachutes on the flight. Pepper explained that there were no parachutes on board. Glancing in the rear view mirror, I noticed the worry on Dill’s face. “What if the plane crashes?” he asked. Trying to make him feel better I quickly said, “Well, the seat cushion turns into a floatation device.” Pepper quickly remarked, “Gee, that’ll really help as we fly over Georgia!!” OK… she had a point! ☺
