New York City, NY, Friday, 11 February 2016 – It was the big day. Chloe and Ronald the fat cat were heading out to New York City. Whilst on the plane, Ronald was reading a book, because everyone knows all fat cats can read. In the book, a boy was asking his mother why he can’t have a pet grizzly bear and keep it in his bedroom.
They landed at JFK at 2:30 PM local time. They checked into their hotel, hung out there, and got a dinner of juicy steak and mashed potatoes.
After dinner, they headed through Midtown Manhattan to the Empire State Building. During their journey, they encountered members of a Broadway act wearing drama masks. They reached the base of the Empire State Building and waited in line for an hour and a half. Admission for adults was $25, and admission for fat cats was $10. They went on a crammed lift up to the 80th and 102nd floor observatories. The night time views and the light show was spectacular. Little did they know about the upcoming storm. At about 10 PM, a lightning bolt struck the Empire State Building. It was a harrowing experience. $35 to nearly get zapped by lightning? It should have been $500. At 11:30 PM, Chloe and Ronald were exhausted. They got a cab ride back to their hotel room in Lower Manhattan. During the cab ride, they saw a drunkard stumbling out of a nightclub. Our cab almost hit him. He’s sure going to have a bad hangover tomorrow morning. When they got back to their hotel room, they fell asleep instantly.
The next day, they had eggs, bacon, and pancakes for breakfast. At about 10 AM, they went to Rockefeller Centre. They went to the Top of The Rock Observation Deck and skated on the famous ice rink. As it turns out, fat cats are not very good ice skaters. Whilst Chloe was exploring all the artwork, Ronald disappeared. It took an hour for Chloe to find him again. Apparently, he broke into the NBC studio and appeared on national television. Well, for two minutes until he was pulled off camera, then he wandered around until Chloe found him again. They ate lunch at Rockefeller Centre and returned to their hotel room.
The following evening they visited the 9/11 Memorial and went to the top of One World Trade Centre.
The next morning they went to the Statue of Liberty, the Met, and they had a picnic in Central Park. The fun continued for two days until they had to fly back home.
Chloe had booked the flight back home on a dodgy budget airline. This particular plane, however, had been poorly maintained by the airline for many years. During the course of Chloe and Ronald’s flight, a crack in the fuselage progressively developed. About three hours into the six and a half hour flight, the airline’s negligence came to a breaking point when the fuselage gave way, resulting in a catastrophic decompression. The decompression destroyed most of the aircraft’s vertical stabilisers, and within minutes, the plane entered a steep dive and crashed. The crash resulted in the deaths of all 220 passengers.
Moral: Don’t fly with dodgy airlines, no matter how cheap it is
