American Airlines has joined with other airlines requiring masks to be worn on their planes!
You can’t say the word mask in Idaho right now without it turning into a brawl….
“You’re trying to destroy our rights!”
“You hate me and want me to die if you don’t wear a mask!”You’ve heard them all. Probably thought some of them too…
But in airplanes…
A few years ago I was boarding a plane. My wife and I were flying somewhere. Don’t remember where. Doesn’t matter. We were on this metal tube with recirculated air. I start to SMELL THIS HORRIBLE SMELL! It’s like death mixed with poop. It’s terrible.
Pretty soon it’s obvious that it’s a guy 3 or 4 people in front of us. Now, I’m a praying man. Especially at a time like this. “Dear Lord! Do NOT LET THAT MAN BE SITTING IN MY ROW!!”
We keep walking toward the back of the plane. People are peeling off into various rows, leaving us getting closer and closer to …. This man… This smelly man.
My prayers get strong. “God, I’ll stand up in this airplane and preach if you want. I’ll even sing! Just don’t make me sit next to this man!!!”
The smell is getting into my nose. It’s starting to cling to my nasal passages. The stench is rancid.
My prayers take a darker turn, “God, I’ll give you any of my children. Take them. Whatever You need to do… Just…. Don’t let me …. Sit…. *cough* next to THAT MAN!”
I’m sitting in my seat. My wife to my left. This man to my right. The air nozzle blowing full blast on me. The plane is cold. I’m freezing with all this cold air on me. My wife is baffled… “Turn off your air! You’re freezing!” “This is the only way I’m not dying trying to keep this smell from the cattle auction from filling my soul with a stench that I’ll never get rid of!”
So, if the airlines want to institute masks, as much as I hate masks, this might be the thing we need!
