Flying home to Upstate NY tonight to be in my BFF’s wedding. Writing this blog from Denver International Airport (props for free Wifi), so excuse any rushing/typos on my part. I plan on freaking out when they start to board in a little bit…
S is actually worse about this than me. He cannot fly without heavy doses of Xanax, advil, his ipod turned way up, and noise-cancelling headphones (I actually just wrote “ear-cancelling” wow). I tried some of his Xanax once…it was not a pleasant experience. I felt all groggy and heavy, and not in control of my limbs. I freaked out WORSE because I thought I wouldn’t be able to react if something happened…like, I could *totally* stop the plane from crashing if I wasn’t on drugs. Fo sho.
So since that went so badly, I have resorted to good old chocolate-induced dopamine and lots of denial. I pull the window shade down, and pretend I’m NOT thousands of feet in the sky. I read trash-mags, which I’m usually never interested in. (Did you HEAR about poor Jamie-Lynn’s betrayal??) But after a while, you get airplane-mouth. So you have to balance your chocolate with something fruity. This trip I opted for a combination of M&Ms and Skittles. Handy & discreet. Not many pesky wrappers, and small enough to suck on without chewing. But I did bring the ear-cancellers.
Now to obsess over the fact that I *must* have left something crucial at home. Besides my husband (sniff). It’s weird flying thru Washington when all of Washington is in Denver…heh. And there is a college girl sitting next to me who knows EVERYTHING!!! The world is SAVED. Well, they’ve started to board…time to break out the M&Ms…see ya’ll in the Eastern time zone!
