Does this post on John Mayer’s blog mean that he’s a commercial guy (vs. private jet guy)? We hope so! You rock John, and glad to hear you’re alright.
From John Mayer’s blog-
You’re on an airplane, sleeping with your head against the window, your heart set on being home this time three hours from now. All of a sudden, something goes very wrong. The plane stops moving across the air and instead starts falling through it. The lights are flickering and the movie is skipping. The plane dips hundreds of feet in seconds, and the yellow cups fall from the ceiling. They’re a brighter shade of yellow than you remember, because unlike the demonstration, these cups have never been handled before. “Flight attendants take your seats now”, you hear, the pilot’s voice trembling over a cacophony of alert tones. You get that smell in the bridge of your nose like you’ve just been hit with a football. That’s what the fear smells like. The plane is going down.
He goes on to explain the thoughts that go through your head, and then, finally, the plane stablizing. Then he poses a question. If it’s all going to end today, “what would you change?” Then he writes, “Think about that, and then ask one more question. Why not just change it all right now?”
