Air crash.

August 8th, 2011

(Having fun looking thru old diaries. I wrote this movie scene May 27, 1982)

A woman is visited by federal air safety officials. She is told that her husband’s body has just been found in the wreck of a crash. The plane had gone missing in 1952. She takes it with equanimity, saying she had always wondered what happened. “I had asked him to run down to the late-nite pharmacy and get me a box of Kotex. He just never came back.” The officials exchange glances, then one of them produces a box of Kotex. “Here.” he says, “Not many women have a husband like yours.” She accepts the box and tosses it aside. “They’re no good to me now.”
