I’m taking part in a 100-word song challenge initiated by Lance of My Blog Can Beat Up Your Blog. It ‘s a great way to hone writing skills when you’re limited to a specific word count.
Lance always has a soundtrack, and for this challenge, he even has a 100 word song robot, Leeroy. This story is inspired by Elton John’s “Take Me To The Pilot”.

“Take me to the pilot.”
“What’s wrong?” The flight attendant looked at me dismissively.
“We’re off course.”
“I can assure you that—”
“Don’t assure me.” I got up and pushed her out the way.
She screamed after me. “Stop!”
Running up the aisle, I pulled open the curtain segregating coach from first class and proceeded to bang on the cockpit door.
“Why are you flying over the Atlantic?” I yelled.
I turned to stare at the frightened faces in first class.
One Asian lady said, “We fly to Cambodia … need to go over Atlantic.”
“Cambodia? I’m going to Canada.”
