WHEN YOU CAN'T GO WHEN YOU GOTTA GO

The blog this week is in response to the Campaign Challenge I entered in. Enjoy this short humorous post :)
The door swung open. A hand reached around the corner of the bathroom at the front of the airplane and slapped up and down the wall. All the passengers watched. Was someone having a breakdown? The hand jerked back in and pulled the door shut. The bathroom door rattled as the pounding began inside.

The door swung open again. A blonde headed woman poked around the corner looking up and down the wall then pulled back in again. A moment later the hand thrust through the door once more and thumped the other side of the wall, this time going higher. The hand paused, and then dropped to strike the wall again, now she was beating the wall all the way to the floor.

The arm disappeared inside—more smacking the wall inside before the door swung open again and the arm and head poked around the corner and the whacking began again.
A stewardess hurried to the front of the plane and whispered something to the lady. The blonde’s face was scarlet. She murmured something to the stewardess.
The stewardess smiled. She showed the blonde how to latch the door to turn on the light. The door swung shut.

There will be a semi-final (stage three) and a final (stage four).

Best of luck!!

Hilarious stuff, being a great traveller I can just see this happening..... thankfully not to me...lol.
Congrats on the short listing.

Connie said...

Another great "Jane moment" for us all to giggle about. You are so awesome. I wish I could put to paper the goofy things I have done half as good as you, but being as that will never happen I will continue to enjoy your posts.

Good luck with this challenge!!!

...should I resent the fact that this seems like a dumb-blonde joke? ;)

Jane Isfeld Still said...

NOPE! not a blonde joke. Did I mention that I was blonde and these kinds of things happen to me all the time. BTW you should hear some of the things that happen to my brunette friends. LOL

Alica McKenna Johnson said...

Very funny

AveryMarsh said...

Hehe, that was great. :)

This is great. First time I laughed aloud for an entry. By the way, you didn't comment for the chocolate contest. If you're going incognito on my blog, might as well smear some chocolate on your face as a disguise! Here's the link to win chocolate: http://sherahart.blogspot.com/2011/08/want-some-free-chocolate-brown-nosing.html#links

Hi from a fellow humor campaigner. Loved your entry :) Congratulations on being short listed. Mine is #347 if you have some time. Great to find your blog - it's been taking me some time to connect with everyone in my groups.

It's so sad that I've been in similar circumstances--not on a plane, but in a public bathroom, my back side reaching for the toilet, while my hand reached to hold the door shut.

Margo Kelly said...

HAHA. That was stinkin' funny! :)

Nicely done.

I'm a fellow campaigner and new follower. Nice to meet you!

Doreen said...
