I’m pretty afraid of flying, but when I’m up in the air, cruising at 30 thousand feet, I try to think about these lines from the screwball comedy “Airplane,” and I always feel better.
“I am serious…And don’t call me Shirley.”
“Excuse me Stewardess, I speak jive.”
“That’s when I developed my drinking problem.”
“Guess I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue.”
If you haven’t ever see “Airplane” it’s streaming on Netflix now. Watch it, laugh and enjoy the brilliant silliness.
