As you guys know, my minder says that to avoid con-crud, I must take two days more or less off, and the high holy holiday (the 4th) completely off.
I’ll do a promo post later, but for now…
On our plane out there was a medical emergency (which freaked me, because I thought it was a MECHANICAL emergency) and they announced “Is there a medical professional on the plane?” Only I understood “is there a mechanical professional on the plane?”
Once I figured out I wasn’t going to die right then, or perhaps live through younger son having to patch up the plane in flight, other thoughts occurred.
I confess I still haven’t come up with an explanation to the following announcement: “Is there a published novelist on board?” I mean, what emergency COULD require that.
Some are self obvious, like say “Is there a vampire hunter on board?”
Or “is there a plumber on board?”
Write no more than 200 words in the opening for a story that starts with a really unusual “is there an x on board?” announcement, and explains why (while setting up the novel or story hook.)
