Used to get you the airport so fucking early, but I actually think it was because they saw that as as much fun as the holiday. In fact, on days out with my dad we’d often just go to Manchester airport.

Listening to Kendrick Lamar, Hot Snakes and Whores.

That used to be great because you could get anywhere you wanted without actually boarding a plane, and planes are great fun to watch.

We used to go on a rooftop bit where all the plane needs would gather and my dad would listen in on their radios so you could hear the pilots

I’ve got great memories of going to the airport for hours with my grandad and a packed lunch.

Your dad sounds like he mightve been a spy.

Like in the sopranos when Tony’s dad takes his daughter to the fair, but he’s being a mafia there
