The two Lufthansa flight crew stood like statues, only their faces showing their amusement at watching me walk from the gangway onto the plane.
At the very step where I had to cross the threshold I decided to multitask and turn the data off on my phone. While doing this I lost depth perception and I made a very large, albeit graceful step onto the plane.
I realized what I had done and looked to see if the flight crew had noticed and of course they had!
I laughed my boisterous North American laugh, they shared their well structured German laughs and that just made me laugh more.
The one flight member asked me if I’d do the step again, it was so well performed, natural even!
As I made my way past them one crew member made a comment about the need for laughing.
I turned, smiled, laughed and said, “I am good at laughing!”
To which he replied, “Well in that case, Welcome Aboard!”
Did I mention how much I love zeGermans and their quiet, direct humour! Can I stay on Frankfurt!
