“Aw, c’mon.”

“Hey, Bobby! Look! I bought a plane!”

“You been talking to Irving again, Josh?”

“I talk to Irving all the time. He’s got the best Jackson Browne stories.”

“Sure. Josh?”

“Yeah, Bob?”

“Why?”

“Cars, guitars, watches: done ’em. This is the next step in Obsessive Rich Guy Bullshit. You’re not a true ORG unless you can have an hour-long conversation about pre-flight checks. Do you know what an aileron is?”

“I think Billy showed me his once.”

“Live for the flight hours, die by the flight log.”

“Flying’s for the birds.”

“I see what you did there.”

“Yeah.”

“But, Bob: you don’t realize how much other stupid bullshit to blow your money on BESIDES the plane there is.”

“You already bought a plane?”

“Six. I really get into hobbies.”

“Looks like, yeah.”

“Except two were fake and now there are lawyers involved.”

“Good luck with that.”

“Thanks, But, yeah: you gotta pay to store it, and have a guy work on it, and there’s fees everywhere; do you know how much a tank of gas is?”

“For a car?”

“No, Bob. For a plane.”

“Why the hell would I know that? I’ve never bought gas for a plane in my life. I buy tickets for planes, or play Super Bowl concerts for planes.”

“And the clothes.”

“Don’t you have enough clothes? I’ve got five shirts and my closet is a mess.”

“There’s bomber jackets, and those shell coats the pilots wear.”

“Those are nice.”

“And you can put patches on everything. So many patches, Bobby. Patches everywhere.”

“You’re not flying us around on the tour, Josh. Putting my sandal down.”

“Aw, man. Bruce Dickinson does.”

“Don’t compare yourself to Bruce Dickinson.”

“Ow.”

“Had to hear the truth sometime, Josh.”

  2. Bruce Dickinson collects the heads of pretty-boy rock twerps he’s defeated in sword duels fought over aircraft landing & taxi priority
