Watching the Engine

Mrs. Green was an old lady. She traveled often and wasn't afraid of flying. On day she was going from Chicago to San Francisco in a big plane. There were a lot of empty seats on it.

Mrs. Green's seat was near a window. There was a young man on the other side of the aisle. He was near a window, too. Mrs. Green looked at the young man several times.

«He's always looking at the engine outside his window,» she thought. She got up and walked around the plane for a few minutes. Then she sat down and looked at the young man again.

«Yes,» she thought, «he's looking at the engine all the time.»

After half an hour Mrs. Green went over to him and said, «Take a walk around the plane, young man. I'm going to watch that engine for you for a few minutes.»
