I am not talking about yesterday’s game. Though we did lose, as we do most of the time right after playing the Red Sox. Balloon bursts following all the tension of the rivalry. Enough written about it. Why repeat meaningless statistics ? And they are, at this point of the “almost virgin” season.
I am talking about a bizarre story I heard on ESPN yesterday. Mike and Mike in the morning.
John Lennon airport somewhere in
Next thing you know – all three were arrested. Why? The gentleman in question after closer inspection was dead! And not sleeping as the ladies were trying to say!
They somehow got him into the taxi to get to the airport, into the wheelchair from the taxi and, I guess were stopped at the security check point. The dead man was not playing the sleeping man part too convincingly despite the big sunglasses and sitting still. So, all were arrested on suspicion of failing to get notification of death.
How did they get him into the taxi?
How did they get him into the wheelchair?
Did he have the window or the aisle seat for the flight? And who would have been sitting next to him? One of the ladies or a chance passenger?
Why they did want to get him to
Was the dead man arrested as well? Where did they put him? Holding cell or the morgue?
If they would have notified the authorities – would he be allowed on the plane?
How many people are still hysterically laughing?!!
I am telling you – next time I fly (and that's next week!) – I am poking my fellow passenger with whatever sharp instrument I am allowed to check on board! Though, come to think of it, a dead man next to me would be a huge improvement vs. all the others I usually get. At least he will be quiet. And no pretend snoring while dropping his head on my shoulder.
Yeah, I’d rather travel with a dead man – as long as I am not the one pushing the wheelchair!
