|"What exactly do you mean by 'all messed up', Mom?"|
"Why don't you and I go take a look?"
She went into the bedroom and I could hear her starting to re-make the bed. I was sure she could use some help, so ...
|"Wait for me!!!"|
"Mags! Were you doing aircraft carrier landings?!?"
|"That's entirely possible."|
Since she brought up aircraft carrier landings, I figured she'd want me to get some "touch and goes" practice in. I left the room, then zoomed back in:
|"Coming in for a quick landing!!!"|
|"YEAH! How was that?!?"|
"I think your brakes are off, Maggie."
|"'Brakes'? Do you mean my tailhook? We don't use those for 'touch and goes'."|
I thought I should try again - maybe try a lighter landing and quicker take-off.
|"I'm taking another run, Mom! Look out!"|
"Maggie, I'm trying to make the bed!!!"
|Me, slamming on the brakes! ... I mean, engaging the tailhook.|
You know, I could get a lot more practice in if someone didn't keep messing with my runway! No worries, though - I'll keep at it!
