thanksgiving proposal

Is the day before Thanksgiving the busiest travel day in the U.S.? I think so. Seemed like it the year I was to fly back to Toledo to meet my girlfriend’s family and propose to her after dinner. That was my plan, the proposal. I wasn’t firm on the timing.

In the terminal, waiting to board, elbow-to-elbow with my fellow travelers bound for Ohio, I had a premonition. Our plane was going to crash. No argument.

This was my second premonition. As a teenager, while driving down the road, I had an idea that I was going to lose control of the car and hit a tree. The thought was so clear to me that I panicked and hit a tree.

I left the line waiting to board. I left the security area. Before ordering a ride back to my place, I called my girlfriend.

“You had a premonition?” she said.

“I did. I think the plane is going to crash.”

“Is the weather bad?”


“Please go back inside and get back in line. We’ll see you when you get here.”

  1. It looks like she’ll be the boss in that relationship! Nice one.

    Here’s my story

  2. I am sure his girlfriend’s words came true 😊

  3. Hmmm… lots of speculation on this. What would you do? I guess I really would get another flight if i felt that strongly.
