Flight Attendant Humor
We had a blast in Ohio over Thanksgiving weekend! Anthony is at the age where most things Julie does bugs him, and Julie is at the age where she is repeating everything and wants to do whatever Anthony is doing. What a fantastic combination.
Anyway, the flight back was fairly uneventful except that the flight attendants on the Dallas to Austin leg apparently missed their calling. The woman who did most of the announcements injected as much humor and inflection into the intercom as possible. I like that. Sometimes. Their jobs can be rote repetitious, and for those who travel regularly, the announcements are part of a widespread anti-sleep conspiracy. Well, not on this night! Following “after applying the oxygen mask, breathe normally,” we heard “whoosh wheeze whoosh wheeze.” Yes, she actually demonstrated breathing normally. (Side thought: considering the circumstances that make it necessary to use an oxygen mask on an airplane, how would anyone continue to breathe normally?)
The really funny line was when she dimmed the lights, saying “We will now dim the cabin lights to enhance the look of the flight attendants.” That’s a good one! heh.
