In-Flight Chaos: A Pilot Battles His Booze and Imaginary Monkey

In-Flight Chaos
In-Flight Chaos – Midjourney

As I sit in the cockpit of my airplane, I can feel the alcohol coursing through my veins. I can feel the oncoming in-flight chaos. It’s been a long day of flying and I just want to close my eyes and get some rest. But there’s one problem: my damn monkey.

You see, I have this imaginary monkey who lives in my head and he’s always causing trouble. And tonight, he’s being particularly annoying. Every time I start to drift off into a deep snore, he wakes me up with his incessant chatter because the snoring noise is so loud and is keeping the monkey awake.

“Come on, captain, you can’t fall asleep now!” he chirps in my ear. “We have a plane full of passengers depending on us!”

But I just can’t help the in-flight chaos. The alcohol has made me so drowsy and I just want to get some rest. So I turn to my monkey and give him a piece of my mind.

“Shut up, you stupid monkey!” I slur. “I’m the pilot here and I’ll do what I want. Now let me sleep!”

In-Flight Chaos

But my monkey just won’t leave me alone. He’s hopping up and down on my shoulder, pulling on my hair and generally being a nuisance. I can feel my frustration boiling over and I’m about ready to snap.

Finally, I can’t take it anymore. I turn to my monkey and give him a good shake. “Listen here, you little pest. I’m the captain of this plane and I’m not going to let you ruin my rest. Now leave me alone and let me sleep!”

With that, I close my eyes and drift off into a deep snore, my monkey forgotten for the moment. But I know he’ll be back, causing more in-flight chaos as soon as I start to doze off. Such is the life of a drunk pilot with an imaginary monkey.

Monkey Mate & Dopamine

Monkey Mate
Monkey Mate – Midjourney

The sky is my stage, my craft my stagecoach,
I soar above the clouds, a drunken paradox.
My monkey mate by my side, a faithful co-pilot,
Together we navigate the skies, we take off and we fly.

Dopamine, my companion, my guide on this flight,
It signals reward, my mind in a heightened state.
It plays a complex role, but expectation is key,
Just like a paycheck, or the song of an ice cream truck, it sets me free.

Classical conditioning, a lesson learned in the past,
Ivan Pavlov’s dogs salivated, their reaction unsurpassed.
A bell ringing, a signal for a treat to come,
My monkey mate and I, we too are conditioned, our journey has begun.

But dopamine is not just pleasure, it’s also stress,
It’s a neural transmitter that shapes movement and memory, I must confess.
My monkey mate and I, we expect the reward,
A sip of juice, a sip of whiskey, our relationship never to be ignored.

We fly above the clouds, with dopamine as our guide,
Our minds in a heightened state, our senses open wide.
We are the drunken pilots, with monkey mates by our side,
We soar through the skies, our journey never to collide.

My dopaminergic neurons fire, my monkey mate by my side,
We expect the reward, and together we’ll glide.
Through the clouds, through the skies, our journey never ends,
With dopamine as our guide, and monkey mates as our friends.

Inspired by… Dopamine: More than just reward

Monkey Mates and Dopamine

So, a group of monkeys were hanging out in the jungle one day, chatting about their love lives. One particularly amorous monkey was bragging about how many mates he had, when suddenly a pilot crashed his plane nearby.

The monkeys rushed over to see if the pilot was okay, and they found him stumbling around, clearly drunk. One of the monkeys, feeling a bit mischievous, snatched a bottle of booze from the pilot’s hand and took a swig.

Suddenly, the monkey’s brain was flooded with dopamine, and he felt a rush of pleasure unlike anything he had ever experienced. From that moment on, he couldn’t stop thinking about that sweet, sweet dopamine hit, and he spent all his time trying to get his paws on more booze.

The other monkeys just shook their heads and said, “Looks like someone’s got a new mate!”


Berlin Bomb Shell: The Drunk Pilot’s Dilemma

Berlin Bomb Shell
Berlin Bomb Shell – Midjourney

As I sit on my friend Pablo’s shoulder, sipping a rum and coke (yes, I can drink, I am an imaginary monkey after all), I can’t help but be entertained by the Berlin Bomb Shell scene unfolding before me.

Berlin Dive Bar

We’re at a dive bar in Berlin, surrounded by neon lights, and Pablo is trying to impress the waitress. She’s a tough cookie. With a piercing gaze and a sharp wit, but Pablo, being the drunken flirt that he is, is undeterred.

He keeps mumbling to himself, “ChatGPT, what should I say to a Berlin Bomb Shell?” and before I can even offer my expert advice, he blurts out a prompt, “How to make a girl laugh in a bar.”

The waitress raises an eyebrow, clearly confused by the sudden change in conversation, but Pablo barrels on, trying out his best pick-up lines with all the charm of a brick.

Meanwhile, I’m taking in the bar’s decor – from the dingy walls to the flickering neon signs, it’s the epitome of a dive bar. But what I find most interesting is the waitress. She’s got an air of confidence that I can only admire. I can tell she’s not one to be easily won over by a drunken pilot.

But Pablo, being Pablo, is not one to be deterred. He keeps trying to impress her, referencing ChatGPT at every turn. “ChatGPT says I should buy you a drink,” he slurs, trying to play it smooth.

Berlin Bomb Shell

The waitress, who I’ve dubbed “the Berlin Bomb Shell,” just rolls her eyes and hands him another shot.

It’s a classic case of a drunken pilot trying to impress a woman who’s clearly out of his league. I can’t help but laugh at the absurdity of it all.

Pablo, of course, is oblivious to my amusement. I can tell he’s really putting in the effort to win her over. He keeps leaning in, trying to be suave, and I can tell the alcohol is starting to get to him.

I’m about to step in and offer my expert advice when the Berlin Bomb Shell suddenly gets up from her stool, tossing her hair over her shoulder as she walks away.

Pablo looks crestfallen, and I can tell he’s about to give up. But then, she turns back around and gives him a sly smile. “Come on, let’s dance,” she says, taking Pablo by the hand and leading him to the dance floor.

As they sway to the beat of the music, I can’t help but smile. Looks like Pablo’s charm has finally won over the Berlin Bomb Shell, and I’m glad I was here to witness it all.

Who needs ChatGPT when you’ve got Pablo, the drunk pilot with a heart of gold and a touch of absurdity, working his magic?


Ethereum & Drunk Pilot’s Secret Investment Tool

Ethereum & Drunk Pilot's Secret Investment Tool
Etheruem – Midjourney

I’m a drunk pilot with a wild imagination and a special friend – an imaginary monkey named Jimmy who only comes out when I drink. Jimmy is no ordinary monkey, he’s a genius and gives me hot investment tips that have never gone wrong. And he’s telling me that Ethereum is going to outperform all other cryptocurrencies in 2023.

Here’s why I trust Jimmy’s judgement and believe in the future of Ethereum:

Jimmy’s track record

Jimmy has been my trusty companion for many years now and has never steered me wrong. He’s always been spot on with his investment advice, from predicting the rise of Bitcoin to identifying the potential of emerging technologies like blockchain. His predictions have made me a fortune and I have no reason to doubt him now.

Ethereum’s flexibility

Ethereum is not just a cryptocurrency, it’s a decentralized platform that allows developers to build and deploy their own decentralized applications (dapps). This opens up a whole world of possibilities and makes Ethereum much more versatile than other cryptocurrencies. The platform is constantly evolving and improving, and I believe it has the potential to revolutionize the way we use technology.

The rise of decentralized finance (DeFi)

Decentralized finance is a rapidly growing industry, and Ethereum is at the forefront of this revolution. DeFi allows users to take control of their financial assets without relying on traditional financial institutions. This is a game changer and I believe that Ethereum’s role in this industry will only become more important in the coming years.

The strength of the Ethereum community

The Ethereum community is one of the strongest and most dedicated in the cryptocurrency world. From developers to investors, everyone is working together to build a better future for the platform. This level of collaboration and support is unparalleled and I believe it gives Ethereum a major advantage over other cryptocurrencies.

The Monkey Whisperer

And let’s not forget about Jimmy, the monkey whisperer. He has a sixth sense when it comes to investments and he’s always right. If he says Ethereum is the future, then I’m putting my money where his mouth is.

So there you have it, folks. These are just a few of the reasons why I believe that Ethereum will outperform all other cryptocurrencies in 2023. Of course, this is just the opinion of a drunk pilot with an imaginary monkey, but I have a feeling that Jimmy knows what he’s talking about.

As for our backstories, well, I’ve been a pilot for as long as I can remember, flying planes all over the world. And then one day, on a particularly rough flight, Jimmy appeared. I was going through turbulence and suddenly he appeared in the cockpit, cracking jokes and giving me tips on how to fly through it. He’s been by my side ever since, providing me with laughter and life-changing investment advice.

And as for Jimmy, well, he’s just a monkey with a wild imagination and a love for investments. He’s always coming up with new schemes and wild ideas, but when it comes down to it, his investment advice is always right on the money.

So sit back, grab a drink, and join us on this wild ride to investment success with Ethereum. Jimmy and I guarantee that it will be a wild and profitable journey!


Dog Traits: From Boozy Nights to Doggy Delights

Dog Traits
Dog Traits – Midjourney

I have to admit, as a drunk pilot with a hearing problem and an imaginary monkey that loves to party, I never really gave much thought to dogs traits before. But after a wild night of drinking and flying, my monkey and I stumbled upon a group of dogs who showed us just how amazing they are. And it got me thinking, what can we humans learn from these furry creatures?

Here are a few traits that really stood out to me:

Dog Traits: Loyalty

One of the things I admire most about dogs is their unwavering loyalty. No matter what, they stick by their owner’s side. My monkey and I once got lost in the jungle after a particularly wild night, and we were pretty scared. But then, out of nowhere, a dog appeared and led us back to civilization. That dog didn’t know us from Adam, but he still went out of his way to help us. That kind of loyalty is truly remarkable.

Dog Traits: Compassion

Dogs are incredibly compassionate creatures. They seem to have a sixth sense when it comes to detecting when someone is upset or in need of comfort. One time, my monkey and I were feeling particularly down after a bad hangover, and a dog came up to us and just sat with us, offering us comfort without asking for anything in return. It was a small gesture, but it meant the world to us.


Dogs are brave creatures, and they’re not afraid to stand up for what they believe in. My monkey and I once found ourselves in a bit of a sticky situation after a night of partying with some shady characters. We were surrounded and outnumbered, but then a dog came charging in, barking and growling and scaring off our would-be attackers. That dog didn’t hesitate for a second to put himself in harm’s way to protect us, and that kind of fearlessness is truly inspiring.

Dog Traits: Joy

Finally, perhaps the most admirable trait of all is a dog’s capacity for joy. They find joy in the simplest things – a good belly rub, a game of fetch, a walk in the park. My monkey and I once met a dog who loved nothing more than playing in a big pile of leaves. He was so full of joy and excitement, and it was infectious. We couldn’t help but join in and have some fun ourselves. Dogs remind us that sometimes, it’s the little things that bring us the most happiness.

In Conclusion

Dogs are truly amazing creatures, and there’s a lot that we humans can learn from them. They embody some of the best dog traits that we can aspire to – loyalty, compassion, fearlessness, and joy. And hey, maybe my monkey and I could learn a thing or two about how to behave ourselves from these furry role models.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I think I hear my imaginary monkey causing some trouble again…


Magical Backpack Found by Drunk Pilot on layover – you won’t believe what’s inside!

Magical Backpack
Magical Backpack – Midjourney

As a pilot, Jack had seen his fair share of the world. He had flown to some of the most remote and exotic places on earth, and yet, he had never come across anything like this before. It was a magical backpack made entirely of leather, and it was suave and cool, the kind of backpack that could turn heads in an instant.

The Leather Backpack: A Suave and Cool Accessory

Jack had stumbled upon it in a tiny shop in a remote part of Asia, while he was on a layover. He had always been fascinated by leather goods, and this backpack had caught his eye the moment he laid eyes on it.

Despite the fact that he was already feeling the effects of the alcohol in his system, Jack knew he had to have it. He shelled out the cash and stumbled out of the store, the magical backpack slung over his shoulder.

The Imaginary Monkey: A Mysterious Presence in the Magical Backpack

As he walked back to his hotel, he couldn’t help but admire his new purchase. The leather was soft and supple, and the backpack was big enough to carry all his gear. He even noticed that there were a few hidden compartments that he hadn’t noticed before. This was the ultimate travel companion, he thought to himself.

It was then that Jack noticed something strange. He heard a faint rustling noise coming from inside the backpack. At first, he thought it was just the wind, but as he listened more closely, he realized that it was something else entirely.

He unzipped the magical backpack and peered inside, and to his surprise, he saw an imaginary monkey staring back at him. Jack was taken aback for a moment, but then he realized that it must have been the alcohol playing tricks on his mind.

The Guide to Adventure: A Map to the Unknown

He reached inside the backpack and felt around, but he couldn’t find anything except for his clothes and a few other items. He shrugged it off and zipped up the magical backpack, thinking that he would deal with it in the morning.

The next day, Jack woke up feeling worse for wear. His head was pounding, and he could barely remember the events of the previous night. As he stumbled out of bed and began packing his things, he remembered the imaginary monkey he had seen in the backpack.

He unzipped it again and peered inside, but there was no sign of the monkey. Although he thought it was strange, he didn’t dwell on it for too long. He had a flight to catch.

Over the next few weeks, Jack traveled to different parts of the world, and his leather backpack went with him everywhere he went. He began to rely on it more and more, and he noticed that it could carry an incredible amount of gear without ever feeling too heavy.

The Monkey Returns: A Mysterious Presence Once Again

Magical Backpack
Magical Backpack – Midjourney

It was during a layover in South America that Jack was reminded of the imaginary monkey once again. He had been out drinking with some of the locals, and he had indulged in a few too many shots of tequila.

As he stumbled back to his hotel room, he heard a rustling noise coming from inside his backpack. This time, he was certain that it wasn’t just the alcohol playing tricks on his mind. He unzipped the magical backpack and peered inside, and to his surprise, he saw the imaginary monkey staring back at him once again.

“Who are you?” Jack asked, feeling foolish for talking to an imaginary monkey.

The monkey didn’t answer, but it did something even more surprising. It reached out its tiny hand and pulled out a piece of paper from one of the hidden compartments in the magical backpack.

The Backpack’s Origins: A Magical Artifact

Jack took the piece of paper and unfolded it. It was a map of the world, with various routes marked out in red ink.

“What is this?” Jack asked.

The imaginary monkey didn’t answer, but Jack had a sudden realization. This backpack was more than just a travel companion. It was a guide, a passport to adventure, a window to the world, and a key to unlocking the secrets of the unknown.

With its durable leather exterior and spacious interior, it carried not only Jack’s belongings, but also his hopes and dreams of discovering new cultures and experiencing the wonders of the world. Every time he put it on his shoulders, he felt a sense of excitement and anticipation, knowing that there was no telling where the magical backpack and the journey would take him next. It was a symbol of his wanderlust and his desire to explore the unknown, and he knew that he would never be the same again after his adventures with it.

The Spirit Guide: The Imaginary Monkey’s Role

Over the next few weeks, Jack continued to travel with his backpack and the imaginary monkey. Every time he unzipped the bag, the monkey was there, looking up at him with those big, curious eyes.

At first, Jack thought that he was losing his mind, but as he studied the map that the monkey had given him, he began to see patterns and connections that he had never noticed before.

The monkey seemed to be guiding him on a journey around the world, taking him to new and exciting places that he had never even dreamed of visiting before. Jack found himself following the routes on the map, without really knowing where he was going or what he was looking for.

Enlightenment through Travel: Learning from the Magical Backpack and the Monkey

But there was a sense of purpose in his travels, a feeling that he was on a mission, and that he had to follow this path to its conclusion.

As he journeyed deeper into the world, Jack found that he was discovering things about himself that he had never known before. He was learning new languages, meeting new people, and experiencing new cultures in ways that he had never thought possible.

And through it all, the imaginary monkey was there, leading the way, showing him the things that he needed to see and learn.

Eventually, Jack found himself in a small village in the mountains of Nepal, where he met a wise old man who told him the story of the magical backpack and the imaginary monkey.

Never Alone: The Backpack and Monkey as Constant Companions

The man explained that the backpack was a magical artifact, created by a legendary traveler who had roamed the world for centuries, collecting knowledge and wisdom from every corner of the globe. And the monkey, he said, was a spirit guide, a companion who would lead the backpack’s owner on a journey of discovery and enlightenment.

Jack listened to the man’s story with wonder and amazement, and he knew that it was true. He had felt the magic of the backpack and the guidance of the monkey, and he knew that he would never be the same again.

He spent several months in the village, learning from the old man and studying the ways of the magical backpack and the monkey. And when he was ready, he set out on the road once more, with the knowledge and wisdom that he had gained, and with the backpack and the monkey as his constant companions.

Jack continued to travel the world, seeking new adventures and experiences, and sharing the magic of the backpack and the monkey with all those he met along the way. And he knew that he would never be alone again, as long as he had his trusty magical backpack and his loyal imaginary monkey by his side.

You won’t believe what happened when I sampled booze in Brazil, Thailand, and Africa

I have had the pleasure of traveling all around the world. And as a lover of local culture and exotic drinks, I have also had the pleasure of sampling the local booze in every country I visit. But let me tell you, there are some drinks that are a bit more monkey-licious than others.

Go: Brazil
Drink: Cachaça
Meet: Mico Azul

Take for example, the time I visited Brazil and tried their infamous cachaça. I had a few too many and suddenly, I saw a monkey swinging from the trees. This was no ordinary monkey, mind you. It had bright blue fur, a long tail, and big, googly eyes. It was a blue monkey, or as the locals call it, mico azul.

Stumbling towards it, I saw it look at me as if I was its long lost friend. Reaching out to touch it, it jumped onto my shoulder, nuzzling into my neck. Unbelievable! A new friend had been made, and it was a blue monkey.

I spent the whole day with my new friend, exploring the lush green forests of Brazil. We climbed trees, swam in rivers, and ate all sorts of exotic fruits. But as the sun began to set, my new buddy disappeared back into the trees, leaving me with a newfound appreciation for the wonders of nature.

Go: Thailand
Drink: Thai Moonshine
Meet: Monkey Macaque

But my adventures with monkeys didn’t end there. Oh no, the next time I found myself in Thailand, I made the mistake of trying some local moonshine. It was some of the most potent stuff I had ever tasted, and before I knew it, I was seeing double.

And then I saw it. A monkey unlike any I had ever seen before. It was small and had a bright orange coat of fur, with a long, bushy tail. It was a macaque, and it was stealing fruit from a street vendor’s cart.

I approached it, stumbling and slurring my words, but it didn’t seem to mind. It even offered me a banana, which I gratefully accepted. We sat there, munching on fruit and watching the chaos of the city go by. For a moment, I forgot about everything else and was just happy to be in the moment with my new monkey friend.

Go: African Jungle
Drink: Palm Wine
Meet: Baboon

But as much as I loved my little macaque monkey buddy, it was time to move on. And my travels eventually led me to the jungles of Africa, where I tried some local palm wine. It was sweet and fruity, but it also had a bit of a kick to it.

And that’s when I met the baboon. This was no ordinary baboon, mind you. It was enormous, with a mane of shaggy hair and teeth as big as my fingers. But despite its fearsome appearance, it seemed to take a liking to me.

We roamed the jungles together, and I felt like I was in a dream. I had a giant baboon for a companion, and we were having the time of our lives. We swung through the trees, chased each other around, and even took a dip in a river.

But as the effects of the palm wine began to wear off, I realized that I needed to return to reality. I said goodbye to my baboon friend, and it disappeared back into the jungle. I was left with memories of some of the most incredible experiences of my life.

So, the next time you find yourself in a new country, don’t be afraid to try the local booze. Who knows? You may just make a new monkey friend.


Broken Pieces…

Broken Pieces
Broken Pieces – Photo by Roman on Unsplash

Today we’re taking flight with a poetic masterpiece that will leave you breathless – Broken Pieces.

This heart-wrenching poem tells the story of a love triangle gone wrong, as Jane finds her heart shattered into a million pieces by a heartless love interest. But don’t be fooled by the title – Broken Pieces is not just a tale of sorrow and despair. It’s a witty and exciting journey that will have you laughing and crying in equal measure. So fasten your seatbelts and hold on tight, as we take a turbulent ride through the ups and downs of love and heartbreak.

This poem is not for the faint of heart, but for those brave enough to face the broken pieces, the reward is a journey through the depths of human emotion and the triumph of the human spirit. Are you ready to take the plunge? Then let’s soar into the wild blue yonder together!

Broken Pieces

Up in the sky, flying high with my monkey friend
Over the beautiful island of Tahiti we pretend

We used to sit on the bench of my village school
You’d tell me, Jane, ‘you’re beautiful,’ oh so cool

You always took care of me
I was proud to be with you, you see

But then one day a new girl came to school
You looked at her like a fool

You rented out your heart and didn’t pay the rent
Ignored all the signals I sent

It was as if you’d never seen a girl before
With her curves and curls, she showed such attitude and more

You made her your destiny
I’m no lawyer, so I couldn’t fight for me

You broke my heart into tiny pieces
I don’t like these kinds of heartless species


Ah, broken pieces. How fascinating they are. Like a shattered mirror, each fragment reveals a distorted reflection of the whole. But if we focus too much on the pieces, we risk losing sight of the bigger picture. Perhaps it is not the heart that is broken, but our perception of love that is shattered into a million fragments. And just like with a broken mirror, we have the power to pick up the pieces and create a new, more beautiful image. So let us not lament over the broken pieces, but instead embrace the opportunity to create something new and magnificent.

Billion Dollar Whale: Sipping and Swindling, A Drunk Pilot’s Review

Billion Dollar Whale
Billion Dollar Whale by Tom Wright & Bradley Hope

As a drunk pilot with an imaginary monkey constantly tickling my toes, it’s a wonder I was able to focus on reading “Billion Dollar Whale” at all. I feel like I’m living in the most ridiculous reality TV show ever. It’s like “Survivor” meets “The Big Bang Theory“. Meets “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous“, all rolled into one insane tale of greed and deception.

Every time I thought I was getting into the flow of the story, those pesky monkey fingers would start poking and prodding at my feet, causing me to lose my concentration. But somehow, I managed to power through this thoroughly entertaining and eye-opening tale of greed and excess.

The Story of Jho Low aka Billion Dollar Whale

The story of Jho Low and his scheme to defraud billions of dollars from a Malaysian sovereign wealth fund hooked me from the very first page. The sheer audacity of his plan was mind-boggling. And the way he managed to pull it off was nothing short of genius.

But just as I was getting into the nitty-gritty of Low’s Billion Dollar Whale scheme, the monkey would start tickling my toes again. Causing me to break out into fits of giggles and ruining my focus. The excess and extravagance that Low and his associates indulged in constantly drew me in despite the distractions.

Excess and Extravagance

Their lavish parties and frivolous spending seemed almost obscene. Especially, in the face of suffering and poverty that so many people around the world face on a daily basis. But every time I tried to contemplate the moral implications of their actions, the monkey would start tickling my feet again.

Despite the constant disruptions, I found myself rooting for Billion Dollar Whale. At least until the very end, as he evaded capture and punishment time and time again. It’s like a trainwreck – you know it’s going to end badly, but you can’t help but watch in morbid fascination.


In the end, “Billion Dollar Whale” is a must-read for anyone looking for a wild, outrageous tale of greed and excess. Just be prepared for a rollercoaster ride. And keep an eye out for any imaginary monkeys that may try to steal your jewelry mid-flight. But most importantly, make sure you have a good pair of socks on hand. You never know when those mischievous monkey fingers might start tickling your toes.


Imaginary Monkey & Drunk Pilot: Plane’s Perspective on Surviving

Imaginary Monkey
Imaginary Monkey – Photo by John McArthur on Unsplash

As a plane, I’ve had my fair share of wild rides, but nothing quite compares to the chaos that ensues when my drunk pilot brings his imaginary monkey on board.

It all starts when the pilot stumbles onto the plane, reeking of alcohol and with a mischievous grin on his face. I can already tell it’s going to be a long flight.

The imaginary monkey takes control from the start, scampering into the cockpit and taking the controls with glee. I can feel him yanking and pulling on the steering mechanisms, causing me to dip and swerve through the air.

Meanwhile, the pilot is passed out in his seat, snoring loudly. It’s up to the imaginary monkey and me to get through this flight.

At first, it’s kind of fun – the imaginary monkey is playful and energetic, and he makes the time pass quickly. But things start to get out of hand when he gets ahold of the intercom system.

He starts playing pranks on the passengers, pretending to be the captain and making announcements in a silly voice. They seem to be in on the joke, laughing and cheering as the imaginary monkey goes on and on.

Imaginary Monkey

But then he starts stealing their jewellery. I see him sneaking down the aisle, snatching up earrings and watches as he goes. The passengers are less amused by this, and I can hear their protests over the intercom.

The monkey doesn’t seem to care, though. He’s having too much fun causing chaos.

He even starts playing with the kids, chasing them up and down the aisles and making them giggle. I have to admit, it’s kind of adorable – but I can’t shake the feeling that this can’t end well.

And of course, it doesn’t. Just as we’re about to land, the imaginary monkey makes a mistake and accidentally disengages the autopilot. I feel myself plummeting towards the ground, out of control.

At the last possible moment, the pilot stirs from his drunken stupor and takes over, managing to land me safely.

It’s a relief to be back on solid ground, and I can’t wait for the pilot and his imaginary monkey to disembark. As fun as it was, I don’t think I can handle another flight like that. One wild ride with an imaginary monkey is more than enough for me.
