Summing up is hard to do.

So I'm on (in) an airplane yesterday when all of a sudden the man stewardess came on the speaker to inform the passengers that the noise we just heard was a 'balloon popping on the aircraft'

So To Sum Up:
Al Qaeda is so weakened by our aggressive stance in Iraq that they've now resorting to just trying to startle us using balloons.

So To Double Sum Up:
We are no longer allowed to bring balloons on planes.

So To Triple Sum Up:
People that work at airports and the airlines always refer to the airplanes as 'aircraft'

Always. Like it's a rule. Or something. Aircraft.

So to Quadruple Sum Up:
If you want to impress chicks like Leo DiCaprio does in 'Catch Me If You Can' by pretending to be a pilot make sure you call the plane 'an aircraft'.

So To Sum Up To Whatever We Call the Number 5 Slot:
Airplane folk and people in the airplane business are kooky. And they have 'man stewardesses'. They call them SissyCraft.

The last time I was on a plane, errr, aircraft, I managed to get the exact same cabin and flight crew going THERE as coming HOME. Apparently that's almost impossible and we were all pretty sure it meant we were headed for some strange little island to live with The Others or something...cue the LOST theme [here]. It was a GREAT trip.

Funny, ship captains don't call them watercraft. However, they fume when you call it a boat.

Wait, Cake is one of the Oceanic 6?

You were probably just on a plane of globophobics.

I don't like the term "aircraft." Sounds too much like something made of paper mache.

"This is your Captain speaking. Our aircraft has run into some rain and is deteriorating rapidly. When the glue 'n macaroni oxygen masks descend, please put them on as quickly as possible.

When the Play-doh slides have descend, please exit in an orderly fashion. Your crayons can be used as flotation devices in case of emergency. "

To sum up: You were in a plane.

An aircraft.

Do you not read?

Sparkle Plenty said...

Hmm. Let me reread. Nope, nope, I'm on solid ground. I don't work at an airport or an airline. I ain't kooky*. I don't want to impress chicks like Leo DiCaprio does in 'Catch Me If You Can' by pretending to be a pilot. Thus, I don't need to call the plane 'an aircraft.'

To sum up: He was in a plane.

*I'm not kooky like airplane folk and people in the airplane business, anyway. Other kinds of kooky--guilty as charged.
