Truth or Lie? One of the things Marilyn enjoys most about having a pilot’s license is that she gets to fly her friends to places where they take vacations together.

FALSE.
Oh, God, no! Marilyn will never have a pilot’s license. Years ago, Marilyn decided that she and her husband should get pilot’s licenses. It will be fun, she said. Marilyn’s husband did get his license and flew them to cool places. Marilyn was terrible at flying a plane. It’s a good thing she realized this early on in her flying lessons before she actually had to land a plane.
