Let Your Imagination Soar!

The President of the South Bay New Orleans Jazz Club has a unique last line on his e-mails:  "Sent from my private jet." 

As good as this is, we can do better with just a little tweaking.  How about "Somewhere over Kansas. the Aegean/London (the flight path in to Heathrow really does go right over the city)"  Alternatively, you could write "Gotta go - landing in Anguilla/Moscow/Montreal in five"

If you prefer to have your own helicopter then substitute shorter flights - the Hamptons/Palm Springs or as is rumored that Trump will commute between the White House and his NY apartment via 90 minute flights in Helicopter One.

As long as we are at this - having harmless fun - what about a unique way to deal with receptionists who coo, "May I tell him who is calling?"  Here are some I've actually used, "Yes, I'm his parole officer"  "Yes, I'm his spiritual advisor"   Others that come to mind - "Yes, the Vatican"  "Yes, I'm with the IRS/Witness Protection." 

Best of all, you can do this from the privacy of your own home, clad in old sweats and ratty slippers.  They will never know.  Be sure to wave  at their state/country as you fly over.
