"What was that all about then?" asked a friend at a BBQ today.
More rubbish from Smudger in this week's 'Thanet Gazumph'. I wonder if he writes this trash just to wind me up?
I'm supposed to have "told off" a young lady on the same Hercules flight with the RAF Falcons for "Blowing her nose, telling her she should have swallowed it instead."
Let's be accurate here. The young lady in question was experiencing visible discomfort as the Hercules, having dropped the RAF Falcons, made its sudden, steep unpressurised descent from 12,000 feet to 300 feet for a flyby past the airshow. If you aren't used to this kind of drop, then you can find your eardrums close to rupturing if you can't equalise the pressure in time. In this case, she was clearly experiencing pain and I suggested that she swallow repeatedly and blow her nose gently to release the pressure trapped in her ears. It worked but a corrupted version of the truth in the Gazumph is all the thanks I get.
As for going through someone else's airshow programme, all the Falcons kindly signed one of these for my daughter but when we landed I couldn't find it on my seat and so I asked the person next to me if I might look at hers in case she had picked mine up by mistake. She hadn't but I found it later.
Smudger really needs to find something or someone more interesting to write about than me I think.
