Bitch on the Blog

That’s  it. No more flying. No more anything. If I want to disappear I’d rather do so on my own steam.

The Angel, ever helpful when his mother despairs with the world and its many pitfalls,  mentioned the Bermuda Triangle. Please don’t. Not that the BBC offers anything more conclusive.

So many theories proffered. Makes one wonder how people coped when Vesuvius erupted (reference Anno Domini, Pompeii). I don’t like uncertainty. It spoils things. One minute everything is fine, the next it’s still fine and then the next it’s not so fine. In fact it’s downright shite.  And that’s not taking into account all my own flight disasters. Not that I ever ended up in the Andes. I am modest: I once spent ages – doesn’t matter where – only to find myself, eighteen hours later, on a platform.  Stockport, just outside Manchester. Midnight. On New Year’s Eve. With only my suitcase for company. Do weep on my behalf. I didn’t. Mainly because the situation and build up to it was ridiculous.




  1. I left a comment a few days ago but it disappeared. Maybe this one will disappear as well.

    • Did you, Nick? I see you picked up on the same theme on your blog. The one theory I don’t buy is that the pilot had a death wish. And even if he did you don’t take 200 + other people with you. It’s unthinkable.

      What I find fascinating, and this saga is proof once more, that we [humans] have this deep seated need to know, to explain, to rationalize in order to make sense of the world.

  2. I agree about the supposed death wish – highly unlikely. And I think we want to make sense of the world to relieve our basic feelings of insecurity and vulnerability.
