A little make-believe

I have some good news from school today, but not much time, so I'll have to get to that later. For now, a quick anecdote...

Yesterday in the local coffee shop there was a kid with a helicopter on his t-shirt.

I told him I was a helicopter pilot (ok, that's a stretch, but easier than explaining the larger truth).

Although I couldn't actually take him for a helicopter ride, he did end up wearing my headset and sunglasses, and I taught him how to ask air traffic control for clearance to land.

Here's a picture, I think his name was Laith (Leyth?). He seemed to enjoy pretending to be a helicopter pilot. And for the record, I did too.
