1950s Air Travel
"Isn't this swell honey? I am leaning back nearly at 45 degrees. Look at all the leg room! This flight to France is going to be a breeze. I can't imagine how great flying will be in 50 years. I just read the French word for shit "merde". Haha! That sounds so gross. Damn, the French sure know how to curse. I'm so glad I'm going back. I just hope we don't see any French 10 year olds with my eyes. Oh, the merde French dames would do for chocolate in '44. Did we pack enough smokes for this flight? I can't believe I wore a suit for a 7 hour ride. What was I thinking? Who is going to see me anyway? Wait, other people of my class whom I wish to impress and feel a part of as a contributor to society. You're giving me that look where you can't believe a guy like me can afford this. Haha, I know! I'm glad we rule the world. This will never end."
