Somewhere Over the Twin Cities…

I’m blaming this on turbulence. Which there totally was. Really. Honest. Er… peanuts, anyone?

Tony Giardino: “What are you doing? Wake up!”

Pilot: “Ooooh man! I was having an amazing dream!”

Tony Giardino: “I don’t care about your dream! Land the plane!”

Pilot: “I was just born, and I was eight-and-a-half months premature. The doctors were freakin’ out.”

Tony Giardino: “Oh please, shut up!”

Pilot: “Did I already tell you this dream?”
