Last Thursday, a nine-year-old boy snuck onto a flight from Minneapolis to Las Vegas without a ticket or a family. It wasn’t until mid-flight that the Delta Airlines flight team realized that they had an unwelcome visitor aboard.
I for one am pretty impressed with this young tike. Besides Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone 1, this has got to be the most courageous child under the age of ten.
I would like to clarify that I was thoroughly unimpressed with Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, because he got too soft with all of that bird lady stuff, and don’t even get me started on his replacement, Alex Linz, in HA3.
That being said, I think we need to address the elephant in the room. We’ve all been thinking it, so I’m just going to ask: is there any chance that this boy is actually a grown man suffering from Benjamin Button disease? Curious.
I look forward to the follow-up story when we find out just how much this little champion of the skies was able to steal from the Bellagio once he touched down in the Capital of Second Chances.
