I'm heading "up north" for my seventh Forecast Review. No travelling companion this time - my business Head of Operations is flying from a different airport and Tall hasn't been invited to play. (Dark has never been on the invite list.). While there are friendly faces in the office up there, my favourite Cheeky Chap had his job terminated a week ago. For this three day trip, I am berift of playmates.
Bored, I am left pondering the inexplicable:-
1). Why had the flight time moved again? I'm catching exactly the same flight as on all other trips, but the departure time has changed for the third time.
2). When did businessmen stop wearing ties as standard? I can see one man in a tie on this plane.
3). Why is that man on the same flight as me, again? Must be the third time I've travelled with him. I'm 99% certain he is a journalist (or some political talking head), which is why I recognise him. Can't remember his name - think he's from ITN, which we rarely watch.
4). And, finally, the most inexplicable: why do I always get one tiny drop of make-up on my tee shirt whenever I wear a white one? Also, why do I never notice until it is far too late, even when I've checked immediately after making up?
PS: half way into my flight and I have another question: why do BA's insist on teasing me by showing destinations in Africa and Europe as part of the cycle on the inflight map? I'm only flying 300 miles north. [ pout ]
