To a Woman’s Heart via Helicopter?
I’m a bit late to this, but I just had to comment on wooing one’s girlfriend the Prince William way: landing a military helicopter in her garden. A few brief thoughts:
1. Being a helicopter pilot sounds cool, but paying for the minimum training and being a pretty crummy helicopter pilot probably is not all that cool. Not that Prince William did that, but it’s probably how most guys who tried this stunt would end up.
2. Landing a helicopter in your girlfriend’s garden sounds cool, but taking flight lessons without telling her, then taking her up in a small plane and having the pilot fake a medical condition so you can save her with an emergency landing would be way cooler.
3. From a cost-benefit perspective, I actually agree with Kathy Lette’s perspective toward the end of the article: it’s possibly more advantageous, and definitely cheaper, to impress your girlfriend by learning to cook.
4. From what I hear, Prince William doesn’t need to be a pilot to get women.
