The other evening we had one last flight from Denver to Chicago. I'm always in the best of moods on the last flight of a 3 day trip, and the last flight since working 6 straight is even better.
We had about 3 softball teams come on board, and I immediately started chatting up some coaches, parents, and the star slugger.
During the flight, 3 of the girls stopped me and said "Did it hurt?"
I knew exactly where this was going.
"Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?"
She actually never finished the classic pick-up line becuase she started laughing. So I told her that I would come back and then see if she could do it without laughing.
So this went on the entire flight. Occassionally I would stop to hear what pick-up line her and her 3 friends had come up with. (The best of the evening was "I think we should re-do the alphabet, because you and I should be together." )
Anyways, they were being typical teenage girls and being a bit loud and obnoxious. A lot of the surrounding passengers found it funny and even gave the girls some ideas on pick-up lines, but the 7 year old jackson, who sat 2 rows up, didn't find it funny.
He had proceeded to take a ritz chip which we had handed out to him, and ON THE CHIP scribbled a small note to the ladies, whom he DID NOT KNOW, and handed it to them. On the chip were 2 simple words:
I couldn't help but laugh. I wanted to keep it for my own, but the girls wanted to put it in their scrapbook. I confronted jackson and he couldn't comment for his laughter.
I showed the commuting pilot the chip and he chimed in for one of his own.
"HA! THATS A CRACK-UP!"
