Back to 3 idle thoughts, a la Terry Maxon (scroll to the bottom if you don’t know who Terry is).
- Is a week going to go by where there isn’t a major terrorist incident?
- I don’t have to get on a plane for the next two weeks and I’m perfectly comfortable with that.
- The surface area ratio of peanut butter to chocolate in a mini Reese’s peanut butter cup just isn’t right when compared to the standard-sized peanut butter cup. Just sayin’.
One of the things Terry did each Friday was post on his “Airline Biz Blog” 3 random thoughts (“idle thoughts”, as it were). Sometimes they were travel related, sometimes not. I recall one about his air conditioning going out in the middle of the hot Dallas summers that kept me chuckling. But, my favorite was when he compared airline executives to livestock without completely making it into an insult. I’m betting even the airline execs got some chuckles out of it.
For his final column, he released 30 idle thoughts and I did my best to pick my favorite 3.
To be clear, I’m not Terry Maxon. I enjoy discussing the aviation industry and learning more about it. It’s fascinating to me. But, Terry spent 20 years of his life following aviation. The sum total of what I know about aviation might fill one of Terry’s shoes. That being said, I figured it would be fun to try to pay respect to him by coming up with 3 idle thoughts. On a Friday.
