Plane Ride Essay, Research Paper
After many hours of waiting in the lobby, the plane finally left the hanger. I took one
final glance at where I had been sitting for the past two hours and was glad that the
plane decided to come. As I walked toward the plane, I thought about all the terrible
things that I encountered while I was waiting in the lobby. The only bad thing was

I started to get up off my face when I heard the entire plane laughing at me. I slowly
lifted my bruised head off the ground. I saw a man that was standing directly above
