To all my friends that live abroad in the two states that we visited. We are comming back soon! But this time without the BARFS! My kids didn’t get it! But it was going around. My mom being the one with it only days before we came.
Short and sweet verison of what went down….
Delta short flight… SMALL bitzy plane. We circled the airport like 50 times on the decent. I get motion sickness REALLY easily and really bad on planes. So there I am 20 minutes until landing. Talking my self out of hurling all my guts out. You see once upon a time I flew. I was alone and sat by someone I didn’t know. I talked politely to that person, I made small talk, joked, laughed. And then without warning I chucked….. Politely into the bag provided.
Luckily I have never
A. seen that poor soul that sat next to me (nor the stewartess who took the bag and threw it away for me).
B. Thrown up on a plane since!
So everytime I get on a plane I am "Afeared", "terrified", "scared", that out of nowhere I will hurl all the contents of my stomach on the plane.
The smell of the airport….That is where it starts for me. The heaves I mean. I hate the smell of airports. I traveled with my three tiny children. They seemed to be totally unphased! I hate when they are having a great time and I am not. When I am just having a very familuar talk with myself.
It generally goes like this.
"Ok, OK, OK! Deep breath in…….. out. You just need to relax. Concentrate on RELAXING! This will be over soon. Pretend you are flying the airplane so it isn’t so bad. And maybe you could just think that those sudden drops are fun like roller coaster. Yeah you’d better breathe again.
