“Papa, Papa, Papa,” Grant yelled, as he tugged his suitcase as fast as he could towards the plane. “Can I sit up front with you and help fly the plane?” “Sure Grant, you can fly the plane and I’ll take a nap until we get there. How about that?” Papa joked. “But Papa,” Grant replied, a little worried, “I’ve never really flown a plane.” “Well, you’re never too young to learn, that’s what I say. Just look at me. You can sit up in the front between the pilot and me. I’ll give you your first flying lesson on our way to Chicago,” Papa told him. Once the bags were loaded, Mimi made Papa take a third walk around the little plane to be sure everything was OK. Then they all buckled in and got ready for takeoff. The pilot radioed the control tower and was informed to be ready for takeoff in five minutes. “Ladies and gentlemen,” Papa began in his really deep voice over a pretend pretzel microphone, “This is your co-pilot Papa speaking. Please buckle up and prepare for takeoff. We’ll be leaving in five minutes for the Windy City. Your flight attendant today is Mimi, and she will be providing her famous snickerdoodle cookies and pink lemonade once we are in the air.” 23
