Making Fun Of Airplanes

Last night, during our long drive back home, I thought of easing the boredom by recapturing a flight scene, imitating the bored, expressionless tone of a pilot’s voice:

Me (at the backseat): “Good evening passengers. This is your  captain speaking. You are aboard flight WMC*** bound for SLEX. The time now is 7:30 p.m. and we will arrive to our destination at 10:30 p.m. May I remind you that there is no time difference…”

Dad (on the wheel): “You mean there is no time for difference?”

Me: “…the temperature is 90 degrees celsius. The weather today is partly cloudy. We may experience a bit of turbulence along the way…”

Dad: “The captain has cut out life support! Breathe deep!!!”



Minutes later….

Dad: I wonder… is that a star? (Referring to a stationary speck of light on the deep, dark skies)

Mum: It could be Venus, the brightest star.

Me: Or it could be an airplane facing our way. You know, may headlights din sila.

Dad: YEAH! I never thought of that…. 

Mum: O? Bakit stationary lang siya?

Me: Baka nag-aantay lang [ng signal] para maka-land. Kami dati [aboard the plane] naghihintay pa [magbigay ang tower ng approval] para maka-landing eh.

Dad: Dapat umiikot yun kung ganon. E hindi siya gumagalaw eh.

Me: Hmmm… baka nawalan ng gasolina!

Dad and Mum: Tumirik!! HAHAHA!


Imagine that.

  • Ha-ha! I said, “The captain has cut off life support system. Take a deep breath.” I didn’t say “cut out.” Parang iba yung “cut out” he-he…

    Glad you arrived home safely. Luv ya!
