Today as I wished my buddy Kon Chao have a safe flight! I realized the redundancy of such a statement.
Firstly, my friend is not the pilot of the plane. He has no control over how fast or how high the plane will be flying.
Secondly, he has no control over the pilot’s state of mind. For all we know, the pilot could have been dumped just before he got on the flight. Depending on how upset he is over it, it could affect his piloting skills.
Thirdly, he has no control over the weather. Will it be stormy? Clear blue skies? Let’s not even talk about the condition of the plane, and the random terrorist hijacking or the occasional chance of a freak accident occurring (50% btw). Think of a flight as a random walk through some grass in a Japanese RPG. Sometimes you don’t encounter any enemies in one stretch, but at other times, you encounter monsters every 4 steps. Unless you have some repel on. Haha.
Why do people say inconsequential things? I guess we’ve been conditioned. Like how we reluctantly say hi or invite someone we don’t like to an event just because of courtesy. Or how we say no to that cup of vodka we drink anyway just to give face to the person who bought the bottle. And I shall end this post here just because I can.
