Flying High

July 5, 2012 | by Aish.com

Every year, Saul and his wife Ethel Rosenstein went to the State Fair. And every year, Saul would say, "Ethel, I'd like to ride in that there airplane." And every year, Ethel would reply, "I know, Saul, but that airplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars."

This one year Saul and Ethel went to the fair and Saul said, "Ethel, I'm 71 years old. If I don't ride that airplane this year I may never get another chance. "

Ethel replied, "Saul, that there airplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars."

The pilot overheard them and said, "Folks, I'll make you a deal. I'll take you both up for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say one word, I won't charge you, but if you say one word it's ten dollars." Saul and Ethel agreed, and up they went.

The pilot performed all kinds of twists and turns, rolls and dives, but not a word is heard. He even does a nose dive, pulling up 15 feet above the ground, but still not a word. They land and the pilot turns to Saul, "By golly, I did everything I could think of to get you to yell out, but you didn't."

Saul replied, "Well, I was gonna say something when Ethel fell out…but ten dollars is ten dollars!"
