I Would Have Liked Her Better – Acrylic on Canvas

And so I was trapped in my seat on an airplane.
Full flight, couldn’t get someone else to trade with me.
One of those nice, quieter jets where the engines don’t drown out the super annoying person next to you.
I was stuck next to this overly nervous, non-stop talking woman who did nothing but spew the most judgmental, rude crap.
Pretty soon it became a game, look at my watch and then count how many times she said “I”.
Over an hour of this, I had learned she thought everyone that didn’t put their hands over their hearts should be shipped out of ‘Merica and thought Fox News was the ONLY true news.
I also learned she had some pretty extreme views on women’s rights (they didn’t need them, they had it good before and really if we loved a man enough to marry him, he could make our decisions for us as god intended) and most importantly, I learned that cable was just a way to show our people soft porno and corrupt us all!
She was making me tired.
Finally when she asked me what I did, I told I wrote musical scores for porn movies.
She turned away and said nothing more. 🙂
Best, last hour of a flight to Toledo, Ohio – EVER.
