This is from my blog, Drabbling Daily, where I write a drabble or a droubble (200 words) every day for some reason that's becoming less and less clear even to me, and I thought it fit the sensibilities here:

20,000

“So I don’t know if it was bird strike or what, but the plane’s engine was seriously messed up. Disaster waiting to happen, right? So I jumped on like usual, did my best to get the thing fixed. But there was this guy, sitting right over the wing, kept looking at me.

“So of course I hopped off, figured I’d take care of it once the guy dozed off. Well, what do you know, he was still staring!”

“That sucks.”

“Oh, it gets worse. Ya see, next time I showed up, bastard shot me!”

“You’re kidding, man.”

“Nope. Fuckin’ nightmare.”


(Trivia: In the TLZ episode I allude to here, the passenger was played by none other than William Shatner.)

...and again by John Lithgow, in Twilight Zone the Movie.

And again by a talentless teen actor in the not too distant future. It might not be announced yet, but a remake of these remakes makes little sense -exactly the type pf project the ever regurgitating Hollywood horror machine loves to make happen.

Haha- I love this. That episode still scares the hell out of me. This drabble is a lesson in empathy.
