this is your captain speaking. We are scheduled for lift off in the next twenty minutes. Our flight will take us to Italy and back, with our return scheduled for Sunday, June 1st. The weather conditions are clear and we expect a quiet flight.
Please note this is a non smoking, non drama flight, and that our plane does not afford mobile internet facilities. Emails will not be answered and comments on posts might stay in the moderation queue until our return.
Unluckily, the on-board entertainment system has suffered from a slight technical setback we are diligently trying to repair. Until then, we kindly ask that you make you own entertainment; in case you are stuck for ideas, we propose the following quiz:
- Read the instruction manual carefully from end to end.
- Answer the following question: it is widely considered bad style to escape from life. But if you consider escaping to instead, what is the place every escape leads to called?
- If you wish to try for bonus points, answer the following question too: how do you call a place you are not meant to escape from, and the people who are making sure you don’t?
Also, please take note the correct terminology for the crew of this plane is not escapists – it is escape artists.
Have a pleasant flight.
