BLURB

I quarreled with my mind, protesting to hear any more of this exquisite example of dullness. The hum of the hundred motors only made me more irritated. ’Wake up, wake up!’ With clear expression of discontent I tried to stay focused on the conversation.’ Sweet Lord,’ I looked at them, ‘One, skinny, bold like a knee, the other with face covered by overgrown mustache, both talking hours about planes. I might just doze off in my dream. No wonder they never married’. As soon as the plane smoothly landed I rushed to gather my strewn belongings, fumbling over and away from these dull passengers. Although i'm sure some would find an entire conversation about the Wright brothers fascinating, for me I would have rather spent the flight sitting next to a couple of drunk stiffs, gulping their gin and bloodymary's as they burped and fell asleep. I meet different people every flight, but I prefer the ones I meet in my dreams. I remember particularly enjoying Marilyn Monroe's visit. Every vision is like David Letterman's Late Night Show, but always with a Jerry Springer twist. Although i'm certain I don't dream like others so, I'm not immune to nightmares. I will never forget the night when Caligula visited. [Margaret Johnson]
