A Wing and a Prayer

by Brendan Beary

The woman repeatedly shouted, “I’m God!” as she tried to pop open the door,
Till startled attendants and passengers stopped her and wrestled her down to the floor.
I’ve questions aplenty—but if you can answer the first, I’ll forgo all the rest:
For getting from Frisco to Boise, why is it the godhead is taking SkyWest?
