Gladys Has Wandering Wondering Random Thoughts

I have been traveling the last couple of weeks and have had many random thoughts. Unfortunately I can’t remember what I did with them. I do that a lot these days. I will have a thought and then it will just be gone, much like my keys or my glasses my thoughts seem to wander and not just wonder.
I had this thought while on the vessel of viruses. Why does everyone stand up as soon as the plane docks? I mean you can’t exit until the door opens and they scoot the jetway up. I guess you could but that first step would be a doozie.
Another airplane thought is have you ever noticed we are much like Pavlov’s dogs? When we are in the airplane and they turn on the movie everyone seems to stop what they are doing and all the faces turn towards the screen. It’s almost Orwell-ish.
Which makes me wonder why they don’t show 3-D movies while in flight. Can you imagine taking the I-Max flight to Kenya while they play “When Animals Attack” in 3-D?
Now I must share this story with you because it’s just too good not to. All y’all know my daddy, Trooper Bob, is quite the story teller. He recently shared this story with me about a trip to my favorite planet. The planet Squal-mart.

Trooper Bob had to use the facilities. Yes he had to see a man about a horse, he had to drain the lily or whatever it is you guys say when you have to go pee. So he enters the restroom and does what guys do. Stands with his brain in his hand and relieves himself at the urinal. He finishes and turns to wash his hands just in time to see a man exit the stall. Trooper Bob swears this is true. The man has a cheeseburger in one hand and a soda in the other.
Now let me just ask a few questions here. First Why? Second why? Third where did he put his cheeseburger and or coke when he wiped?
Now when you travel you hear all kinds of interesting things while you are innocently waiting for the tram or the bus.
Heard in the airport between a teenaged boy and his mother.
Mother: Did you remember to turn off the iron?
Son: Yeah
Mother: Did you remember to lock the door?
Son: yeah
Mother: Well I guess we are set.
Son: I forgot to pack underwear.
Heard in restaurant between man and woman.
Woman: I feel like pork chops
Man: You look like them in those pants.
Remember today if Friday Fragment Day over at Half Past Kissing Time. Mrs. 4's is excited that she is no longer teaching JUST juvie kids so I'm anxious to see what her Fragments are.
Also don't forget that Ann Again and Again is hosting her usual Virtual Girl's Night Out. Go on over and join in.
