The Cockpit? What Is It?

Winging our way between Dee Cee and Charlotte this past Monday, my flight encountered some pretty nasty turbulence.

Sitting there, clutching the arms of my seat with the White Knuckles of Death, I suddenly remembered a delightful little throwaway bit from the movie Airplane!:

Scene: Ted Stryker sitting on an airliner next to a Little Old Lady

LOL: Nervous?

Stryker: Yes, a little.

LOL (reassuringly): First time?

Stryker: No, I've been nervous before.

At that thought, I suddenly burst out in hoots of laughter. The person sitting next to me had already thought I was a coward. I'm sure this convinced him I was a lunatic as well.
