Old Airplanes

It kind of freaks me out when I get on a plane and see ashtrays built into the armrests. I know they run those things on constant trips, and it seems like smoking hasn’t been allowed on planes since that whole Alive debacle. I half expect to look out the window and see props instead of jet engines. Those ashtray armrests are a constant reminder that I’m sitting in a machine with a million moving parts that’s been used about 30 years without many days off.
