Uh oh. The geek's back and participating in the Saturday Centus. Yeah, I know it's not Saturday but I lost a couple of hours traveling and I'm a bit behind.
No, Evil Twin, I did not say I have a Big Behind.
Anyway, the mission is to write a short story, 100 words or less, using a prompt.
This week's prompt starts my travel-related story:
There is a Better Way
It was the 11th anniversary of the destruction of the World Trade Centers.
Airline travel is no longer a huge hassle. Food is again "free" and it doesn't cost you to check your bags or use a pillow or blanket. Gate agents and flight attendants are pleasant and happy to see you.
Airplanes are loaded from the rear door in order by row. Passengers are not allowed to take over-sized carry-on bags onto the airplane.
Security screening is simple. There is no special service for first-class passengers. Everyone must pass inspection by the robots. I will say, though, that their hands can be a bit cold.
