TV Has a Sinister Grip on My Wife’s Brain

A month ago today, my business partner (Paul Riddick) and I jumped out of a plane for the first time. You can read about our skydiving experience if you’d like. To summarize, we jumped out of what felt like a rickety plywood box fitted with a propeller and wings. It was a wonderful gift from my wife for my birthday; we loved every minute of it!

Last night, a friend of mine sent me a breaking news article. A plane had gone down right around the skydiving airfield. I checked periodically for updates, and from what I can see, it was the same exact plane flown by the same pilot who took us up just a month before! Here’s a link for more information – Pilot dead after small plane crash in Lee County.

First, my heart goes out to the family of the pilot. They have my sincerest condolences on their loss.

Second, it turns out this is the second local flight in less than a year to go down in Lee County, Texas. By coincidence, this is also the summer we decided to catch up on the TV show Lost on Netflix. Paul Riddick and I pondered this, and we concluded Amy must have been watching Lost when she booked our excursion. Two planes in a year, planes made of cardboard, chewing gum and duct tape…I think she was trying to get us lost on a remote island in some sort of mind-bending experiment. I love my Amy like nothing else, but I think she’s been watching too much TV!

I’m afraid to go out into my backyard now. What if I run into a polar bear?
