On a recent business trip, the flight was incredibly bumpy. Everyone, passengers and crew, were bounced around like weightless toys on the way to market. It was a disturbing situation, and the woman in the next seat was obviously frightened.
I didn’t want to see her suffer, so I began talking to her. I offered her my hand to hold, and this seemed to help. The flight was fairly short, but we managed to get in quite a bit of conversation. Both of us were flying for business, and it turned out we would be staying at the same hotel.
After the flight, we shared a cab to the hotel and checked in. She had apparently paid attention to my room number, and she called me an hour later to suggest the mutual comfort of casual sex in Manchester. This wasn’t my first turbulent plane ride, but it turned out to be the best. Hopefully every future flight I take will end this way.
