My airplane friends

When I was flying to North Carolina on Sunday, I thought that one of the male flight attendants looked kind of scruffy, with facial hair in strange patterns on his face. Then I realized he's growing mutton chops! Sweet!

On the way back I got to sit across the aisle from this woman I couldn't take my eyes off of. I didn't want to stare, but at the same time I wanted to take her all in and didn't want to forget a detail. In fact, what I really wanted to do was take a picture of her so I could post it on my blog, but I couldn't think of a subtle way to do that. Let's just say that I had her profession narrowed down to three choices: stripper, hooker or porn star. It is only in these three professions where she would make friends who would allow her to leave the house and get on an airplane dressed the way she was. Actually, the navel-baring cut-off t-shirt and unraveling denim miniskirt would have just been trashy and redneckish on their own, but it was the three-inch pink studded platform sandals that really gave the outfit that certain je ne sais quoi.

I'm thinking porn-star; it's just a guess.

I would venture to say that if she was employed by any of the 3 industries you've mentioned, she would not have objected to having her picture taken. In fact, you probably could have gotten her to pose.

Yeah but ew?

Hmm . . . it's entirely possible that she's an aspiring actress, too. Some of them have odd ideas about the direction in which the field is headed.

Remember airplane friends are single-serving friends.

Srah - I haven't laughed so hard in such a long time . . . what a great blog post!

The field is NOT headed to Detroit! :D

Thanks, Noor!

1) I thought paragraph two was starting with "...from a woman with mutton chops".

2) remember when we took that picture of that guy with the awful haircut in that bolo (or whatever it was) restaurant in Jersey? You could have done it that way (pretend to be taking a picture of something/someone else).
