The Mexican Diaries: Leaving On A Jet Plane

When I am about to go on a trip, I go into full-fledged anxiety mode.  Under my fat hair, my brain is in overdrive thinking of everything that can go wrong that will lead to A LOOMING DISASTERWhen somebody asks me if I'm excited about my upcoming travels, I'll say oh yes can't wait, but my smile says root canal.  By the time I get into the car to go to the airport, I am fine because my brain has finally worn itself out.

The night before we left for Mexico I had a dream.  A shopkeeper I know who was so horrible with customers that her employees rarely let her out of the back room, was putting "locator pins" in my neck so in case I got lost I could be tracked.  There were 19 of them.........three large the rest small.  She put them in by first boring a hole with an electric drill and then inserting each pin into the hole.  The big ones?  They kinda hurt.

I related my dream to The Big Daddy in the morning and he said, "Sheesh.  Do you ever do anything thinking you'll have a good time?"  Eventually Obi-Wan-Kenobi, eventually.  We chuckled over my freak night and I got some coffee and the paper.

This was my horoscope............

You might want to rethink a decision, even if you thought it was a good one.  Someone around you could be explosive and quite different than he or she usually is.  Tonight:  Head home.

Aye carumba.

  1. Yay! You're back! Hope it was great fun! This piece reminds me of something I heard during my last pregnancy. I mentioned to my ob/gyn that this pregnancy--11 years after the first--was not as fun as the others and I felt anxious about everything! He said, "You're too smart to have fun with it now. People who are too intelligent and informed can't relax enough to have fun with anything--they know too well what can go wrong!" That's how I like to look at my quirky anxiety bouts--I'm smarter than the average schmo who is too stupid to realize he/she COULD have any one of a million freak things happen to ruin this good time they think they're going to have... So there... :)
