Delusional Optimist Packs Two Books To Read On Plane

Published Friday, September 16th, 2016

Double checking that he had his tickets and ID, delusional optimist Cameron LeClair proceeded to tuck two books into his carry-on bag so that he could read them both on his flight from Albuquerque to Cleveland.

“I’ve always wanted to read “Crime and Punishment”, and my sister-in-law told me that “Lean In” is really good, so I thought what better time to knock them both out,” said LeClair, making sure that his laptop was charged in case he had extra time during his flight after finishing the books and wanted to catch up on some work.

“I’m not sure what order I should read them in, but I guess it doesn’t really matter,” said LeClair, confident that he would somehow be able to finish both books in the same five hour period. “I heard that the end of “Crime and Punishment” is sort of contentious, so I’m looking forward to being able to weigh in on that debate,” added LeClair, not processing the fact that the book is nearly 500 pages long. Before leaving to catch a shuttle to the airport, LeClair proudly left a bookmark on his kitchen table, and exclaimed, “I won’t be needing this!”

At press time, LeClair had reportedly boarded his flight, sat down, and immediately fell asleep.
