Today, Mr. Lovely and I are hopping on another plane and flying to California for a couple of weeks. I’m so, so excited to see my family and spend some time on my favorite coast! What I’m so, so not excited about is the plane that’s taking us there.
We travel a lot. And I love it that way, because I like to be on the move and I love to see the world. But lately, when we’re up in the air, any little bump or noise has been absolutely freaking me out! On the last trip we took back to NYC, our first flight was so bumpy that I was researching renting a car and driving from Memphis to New York instead of taking our planned connecting flight. Oh, the drama!
Now, I’m a rational person. I know that turbulence has almost zero to do with in-flight safety, and that you’re hundreds of times more likely to have a car accident than a plane crash. But my extra-wonderful imagination can’t help but taking off when the turbulence begins, and I become absolutely convinced that we’re going to fall out of the sky.
So there you go. Today — possibly as you’re reading this — I’m smashing one of my two big fears. (The other one, in case you’re wondering, is being eaten by a shark. I blame this on my Mom, because her favorite movie is Jaws.) So wish me luck and say a little prayer that we arrive in California safe and sound. And in the meantime, entertain me — what’s your big fear? xoxo
