Which means it's time for the Friday poetry word
As Mona decreed 'tis "pitch". The idea being if you choose to participate you use the word in some form in your Friday post in the form of a story, a picture or a poem or anything else. I intended to participate as I had missed the last two weeks. My reason being " I am too tired!"
Get a hold on yourself fella.. you ain't folding so easy this time!
That was my inner voice.. one of many..bet you had no idea eh? ;)
To make the process more fun, it was so cold that the friggin overhead cable for the train snapped (so they said), delaying me by another 40 mins at the end of a longer than normal day.
So by the time I got home it was almost 8 pm. So I am like how am I gonna get a post about the Friday word written.
Well nothing that a nice glass of Shiraz won' fix right?
So I present to you this little ..err ....
Enveloped in darkness
Sleep a stranger
I barely heard the low pitch
Of her flux
But in the barren confines of my mind
Her coming to me was like the slowly growing roar
Of an oncoming train
It was like clockwork
Never to be missed...
She was... my innermost fear
Pitching a stake thru me...yet again.

A DC-10 had come in a little hot and thus had an exceedingly long roll out after touching down.
San Jose Tower Noted: "American 751, make a hard right turn at the end of the runway, if you are able. If you are not able, take the Guadeloupe exit off Highway 101, make a right at the lights and return to the airport."
A Pan Am 727 flight, waiting for start clearance in Munich , overheard the following:
Lufthansa (in German): "Ground, what is our start clearance time?"
Ground (in English): "If you want an answer you must speak in English."
Lufthansa (in English): "I am a German, flying a German airplane, in Germany . Why must I speak English?"
Unknown voice from another plane (in a beautiful British accent): "Because you lost the bloody war!"

Man 'You know, I'd really love to travel to exotic places with you.'
Woman (tries to ignore him)
Man 'You know what? I also love sex. What do you say to that?'
Woman 'Hmmm...you really love sex and travel?'
