Plane Talk From Matthew and Madeline

April 25th, 2011

Here are some miscellaneous ruminations from Matthew James (MJ), age 9, and Madeline Grace (MG), age 7, on a recent short flight from Tucson to Phoenix, en route to Los Angeles – spoken very loudly, and on a very small plane:

MG:  Why are we taking two planes?  If we took one plane we’d get there a lot faster.
  . . .

MJ:  Is that a BMX track down there?
  . . .

MJ: It would be terrible if you accidentally got stuck in that smelly airplane bathroom, wouldn’t it?  You poop a lot, Dad – has that ever happened to you?
  . . .

Flight Attendant:  Sorry fellas, you have to have all of your electronic equipment turned off for take-off.
MJ: Why?
  . . .

MG:  Dad, if I jumped out the window, would the clouds hold me up?
  . . .

MJ: Hey look – a basketball court in somebody’s backyard.
  . . .

MJ:  Dad, it looks like Tap Town (IPOD game) down there.
  . . .

MG: Is that my feet that smell so bad?  Should I put my shoes back on?
  . . .

MJ:  Dad, why is it so bumpy in the clouds when they look so soft?
  . . .

MG:  Should I read a book?
  . . .

MG:  It looks like Snow Puff World up ahead.
  . . .

MJ:  Dad, gimme your Blackberry so I can play Brickbreaker.  I’ll raise your high score for you.
  . . .

MJ:  Madeline, look at the clouds going by the window – we’re going really fast.
MG: Yea – I bet like a 100 mph.
MJ:  Faster.  More like 1000 infinity mph.
  . . .

MJ:  Holy Crap, Dad!  Look at that football stadium!
  . . .

MG:  Oh my gosh – we’re going to land in the dirt.
  . . .

MG:  We’re landing.  We’re landing.  We’re landing.  Wait.  Okay – now we’re landing.  We’re landing . . . are we gonna land, or what?
  . . .

MJ:  Wow, that was a smooth landing.  Wait – we didn’t touch down yet, did we? (BAM!).  Jeez, the pilot sure needs to practice his landings.
