Your turn to go

Our co-worker kept trying to get her mother to fly out for  
a visit. “No way am I getting on an airplane,” was the in-  
evitable answer.  

“Look, Mom, when it’s your time to go, it doesn’t matter  
if you’re on the ground or in the air.”  

“I know,” said her mother. “I just don’t want to be that  
far off the ground when it’s the pilot’s time to go.”
