100 Words: October 9, 2009

Planes.  Ugh.

It’s gotten so that I absolutely detest airports.

No, that’s not quite right…I detest the sixty-five minutes between “goodbye” and landing safely. I become an unreasonable bundle of nervous, twisted knots because it isn’t me on the plane, it’s my daughter.

My concern isn’t lessened by the gigantic puff of blueish-black smoke that billows out of the right engine at start-up.

I watch as the propellers spin and the plane edges down the runway. I won’t breathe easily again until I hear her voice on the safe end of the flight.
