100 Below: Volume 18

Ninety-two-year-old Adele Henderson couldn’t have been happier. The 747’s engines had all given out at the same time, and the enormous plane was plunging earthward.

“Woo-hoo!” Adele crowed, exhilarated, feeling younger every moment.

People around her screamed and thrashed aimlessly.

“Nothing can stop us now!” Adele boomed into the gibbering chaos.

No one looked at her. No one had time to notice an old woman’s apotheosis.

Adele reached into her purse and grabbed the dildo hidden inside it. She pointed it like a lance toward the earth’s surface.

“Chaaaaarrrrrrge!” she bellowed.

This story touched my heart! it reminded me of a dream I had in college. Big jet plane was going to crash. The woman sitting next to me had a new baby in her arms. She was screaming "My Baby, My Baby"!
I ripped the kid out of her grasp and took a bite out of its skull like an apple and started screaming at the woman "I bet you thought things couldn't get any worse"!
Then the jet started to level out and I woke up.
Still wondering about that one.
