I had to laugh today. I was struck by an image while I was watching the umpteenth American Airlines new "We know why you fly" commercials.
Some of you may recall that JE flies American.
It appears that John's abilities are rubbing off on AA's gate and ticket attendants. :D
For those of you not familiar with the new ad campaign. It starts out with folks discussing some issue or other related to their destination and why they have to go there. They hurry up to the gate or to the ticket counter and the attendant says something that indicates they know not only where the folks are going but some key important information about why. Then comes AA's new tag line "We know why you fly."
My image was JE talking over with a staff member that he was being interrupted by an energy that wanted to talk to her daughter about the daisy hat. Cut to JE rushing up to the gate attendant who takes his ticket and says "can't keep that mother with the daisy hat waiting." Tag line - "We know why you fly."
This is probably funnier if you've seen the ad campaign. :hmm:
I have seen the ad, and I know just what you mean :) It's a series of ads along the same theme and they're all pretty cute.

I especially like the one where the dad is trying to remember the finance's name and he thinks it starts with a "B" and he's saying "Blake" "Barry", etc. with his wife saying "no ... no... no" and the attendant says to be nice to "Steve."
That's actually the ad that sparked the image. :)

It's my favourite word :) it's a phrase that I say to my loved one's when a blue rose of significance come through, like Amy's validation on the radio.
Translation of the word "Dude" in this sense is: Cool! It's a blue rose! :angel2:
It's also my favourite word to use as a term of endearment to all friends :musicnote
Ok, generation gap here, because I thought you were being sexist. "Dude" to me, is a person of the male persuasion :eek:
And as long as I'm busting your chops (why stop now?) I know you're an artiste' but this here's amurica gurly-dude, and 'round these parts we let the yourapeeins put extra u's in words, bacuz we stole this here country from under them thier noses, but us patriots spell it "favorite!" ;) ;) ;)

To all us Baby Boomers, that's like, totally correct.

:frenchy: Pam you crack me up!!!
Yep, ya got me. I also insist on spelling theatre (the place you see plays and musicals) with an an "re" and movie theater's are with an "er")
Ya I know, I'm weird :frenchy:

My husband calls our grandson Dude. Called him that ever since he was born. You guys made me laugh outloud. I loved it.
The AA commercials are a pip!!! I wonder if JE got the message?????
My daughter and I have been saying, "see ya later, dude!" ever since we saw the precious sea turtles in "Finding Nemo" :love:
Can't wait to see the AA Commercials, though. They sound great. :D
DUuuuuuDE! Swimmin' with the Jellies! You have some serious thrill issues! Speaking of commercials, have you seen the one where everyone's eyes are closed? (It's for a flat TV screen, the brand escapes me at the moment, I guess it's not effective for brand identification!)
They show crowds of people walking down the street, in a movie theater/theatre/whatever ..in a classroom, and everyone's eyes are closed, but the body language doesn't show that. They are behaving as if their eyes are open. And then you see a young woman sitting on a bench in presumably a museum, in front of a huge painting. And her eyes are closed...then they open and her expression changes as she finally "sees".
I think that's a great analogy for the people that are walking around life, with their eyes closed to spiritual truths and the Other Side . They think and behave as if their eyes are open, but in truth, they don't see.
Whoa -- very deep. :hmm: I have GOT to start watching more television... :rolleyes:
Speaking of commercials...there's a new one out that cracks me up every time I see it, making me think of JE's "fish aversion"...
It's for VanDeKamp's frozen fish, and they show this big, realistic looking, ugly fish sitting on a park swing, moving his mouth. As a little girl (standing there in awe) goes to touch it, her mom snatches her away. Then the voiceover says "uncomfortable around fish?" :laff2:
:rolleyes: I guess it's one you have to see to understand. Anyone else seen it?
Oh yeah, and I also want to add that I am surprised that John doesn't fly Spirit Airlines :lwink: :rolleyes:
