(Glossary at end.)
The slicked-backs go first class while I got me an aisle cushion for an in-a-flash vanishing act. I check and I’m bundled next to a little ol’ gray-hair in Michael Kors studded high tops. No spook or mob job here. I pop a dream-maker and I’m on my way out before we take off.
I’m hallucinatin’ green pastures and English castles when my dough loaf gets a poke. I force one looker open and there’s a purrbox on my tray table—with its clawholder on my blower. And the little ol’ wrinkly on my left looks like a hood from Chi. Got trouble but can’t fight the snoozers. The ol’ gray matter blacks out; my oglers and headpiece shut down, and I return to la-la land.
