Now finish the following sentences:

I can’t fly without my…comfortable boy shorts from Victoria’s Secret.

On my last flight…I spent the bulk of my flight counseling a sexually confused young lad.

Once I had a passenger….squish my cheeks between her thumb and forefinger because I cut off her drinks.

Once a flight attendant…Made me feel her up on the plane, because she was proud of her boob job.

Why do pilots…stink up the first class lavatory every time I feed them?

If I could be anywhere in the world, I’d …be home with my hubby, cats, and good surf.

When it comes to traveling, I wish…People (including me) didn’t get gas on the plane.

Why do passengers? Find me approachable when I know I’m not?

The craziest thing I’ve ever seen on a flight…Me–when I was about to give the safety demo, and a passenger told me I had toilet paper hanging out the back of my skirt. (My quick before-p.a.-pee was curtailed by the safety demo!)

Any advice for travelers? No matter how agro you feel try to be courteous. If you can’t be, take a Valium.

Next flight? A (gasp) day trip. I’ll try to stay awake. : 0



  1. Lol, too true about the valium. And how come pax never ask you questions when you look happy, yet bug you for directions when you have sunglasses on and a ‘don’t bother me I’m hungover’ face on?
