Longing for the airline girl

So I just phoned the airline girl
And said, Get me on flight number 505
– Mick Jagger/Keith Richards

So she got me on this plane that went down in the sea in 1966, and have been sole survivor on a lonely island. Still longing for the airline girl. Someone please take this bottled message to TWA and ask for Anita the airline girl. Signed, Robinson C.

    Good luck finding TWA! And Anita’s probably a grandmother now. Oh, I guess Robinson might be into the GILF thing. Great story.

    This was a fun read! I wonder if he would recognize Anita if he saw her after all those years 🙂

    This is great. I love the idea of the longing for the airline girl even after the plane crash.

    ha ha! Loved this creative response to the prompt. Sounds like he needs more than Anita though. Or. . .maybe not.
