Carrot Ranch FF – Landing

Gripping the seat in front of her, she thought she was going to be sick. How many people actually use those bags they put in the seat pocket? She shut her eyes tight, willing nausea to go away.

The stewardess announced, “keep your seat belts fastened, and your head down!”

It was just a short jump from LA to San Francisco, looking down at land the entire trip! How could this be happening?

Panicked, she felt a huge bump, then another. She kept her eyes closed, not daring to see what happened.

“Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to San Francisco”.

    I spent much of my youth flying less-than-stellar airlines in developing nations, but it wasn’t until a few years ago that a regular flight to Chicago caused me to use one of those little bags (I’m pretty sure it was the peanuts that made me sick…). Your flash brought the memory of that flight right back to me, in all its “glory.” 🙂

    1. Small plane over the Rockies, my seat mate used one. I tried to read but my book kept jumping up and down. All safe, but it was fun trying to read.
