Have a Safe Flight

People always say “Have a safe flight” to me. The problem is that I’m not flying the plane, so there’s little I can do to influence the safety of the flight. I suppose I could give the pilot a pep talk about having a solid flight, and I could look out the window for smoke coming from the engines so that I could serve as an early detection for in-flight issues. That stuff doesn’t seem all that likely to help, so instead I check all the airport bars for men and women who look like they could be pilots, and then I peek in the cockpit to see if I recognize anyone who’s flying the plane from the bar.
