"Save Me" 160

Wildly he waved his arms

hoping a plane would see him.

Once again, his hopes were dashed.

“It’s the suburbs, Ed.

No one is going to land here,” his wife sighed.
If you wish to take the challenge, here is a quick look at the rules.

Well done! I chuckled because I've seen them land in the suburbs but there usually isn't a happy ending when that happens.

I have an award for you!

Scarlett said...

Very clever!

I live near an army base and see lots of helios flying by. Maybe they're land in the suburbs?

C.M. Jackson said...

oh mm---good one but I am certain if he needs to be saved there is a soccer field or highway that will do the trick-c

When I was a kid I used to think it meant they were going to crash-land.
