So for halloween this year I wanted to have an awesome costume. For me awesome is anything dealing with flying and what not. So I decided I'd dress up as an airline pilot. So i went online and bought a real pilot shirt and first officer (meant to buy captain but clicked on the wrong button) epaulets. Over the summer up in Alaska, I had a random homeless guy throw a hat at me. The hat was from Salvation Army, but take off the insignia and some other stuff and it is just a plain black pilot's hat. Worked out wonderfully. So then i went to Wal Mart and bought a jet black tie, and then borrowed a set of wings from my buddy Ryan. When I put it all together it looked pretty awesome.
After I put it all on, I looked at myself in the mirror and just had the most amazing feeling. I felt so good. It just felt right. I felt like I was a real airline pilot and that I was about to go head off to the airport to get behind the controls of a huge metal bird and guide it to some exotic destination and then return a few days later.
I definately picked the right career.
