Travel Anxiety

We were running late as usual. We got to the airport and we saw our plane on the runway ready for boarding. First we had to line up and pick out a barf bag and an oxygen mask and various other emergency paraphernalia just in case. I was thinking to myself, "Man, why can't they just have this all on the plane?" We had to try and carry this along with our carry on luggage. We got up to the gate and were asked for our boarding passes. I looked at my husband and we both had a look of horror on our faces -- we forgot to get our tickets/boarding passes! Back at the ticket counter I realized with a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach that I had also forgotten my luggage and all I had with me was my carry on! In my carry on I only had my computer, my purse, a hat, and my knitting! I was standing there, watching everyone else board a plane I was suppose to be on and suddenly I felt someone shaking me on my shoulder. I awoke to my three year old whispering in my face that she wanted to sleep with me. Arrrrrrrrrgh! It was just a dream! I am leaving in 10 days and the travel anxiety has started!

This gave me the biggest laugh. I thought as I read it, how could she forget her luggage? and they never hand out barf bags and oxygen masks. This is just so funny.Have a great trip, and quit dreaming!!!
