“What did you do?!” I exclaimed as Mr. T flipped through the mail and remarked that a manila envelope from the FAA was tucked in between the bills and junk.
Now, I imagined that correspondence from the Federal Aviation Administration must have spelled some type of infraction on T’s part. What, I couldn’t tell you, because T is the most competent and careful pilot I know.
Since my gloved hands were covered in garden soil, T held out the envelope, noting it had my name on it. “What did YOU do?!” he exclaimed.
I posted on Twitter, that’s what.
|Yep, that’s me, the @Bluestmuse goofball cheesing out toward the end of my solo short cross-country flight last summer. Read about that adventure here.|
It took me a minute to remember but I recalled a message from an FAA employee a month prior asking if they could use one of my Twitter pics on the cover of their FAA Safety Briefing magazine. I agreed and promptly forgot.
Hopefully all of my future FAA mail will be this random and cool.
