Lunchbox Crosscheck

I never cease to be amazed by the pilot voice. It must be a critical part of their training. Either way, I’d love to acquire this skill to use around the house:

“Uhhhh, folks. Uhhhhhhh. . . we’re experiencing a little delay getting pulled away from the house, here. Should be ready any minute now. We’re, uhhhhh, waiting on your sister…to find the shoes she swore she had in her possession 20 minutes ago. Just some routine stuff up here. We’ll do our best to make up the time once we’re on the road. Uhhhhh, the temperature at school is exactly what it is here, and we’re expecting a drive time of uhhhhhhhhhh . . . 3 minutes, 42 seconds. So, uhhhhhhhhhh, just sit back, relax and we’ll get you where you’re going in no time. We know you had a choice in who you rode with today, and, uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, we couldn’t be happier you chose dad.” {Click}
