When I forget what it was like to be a kid and have to wait until Christmas, I look to my experience of waiting for a trip to begin. It is approaching soon, but I feel like it is so far away.
My enthusiasm is rising and I can’t wait to be on that airplane (and even eating airplane food). Right now, before I have squished myself into my economy seat for many hours of flying, it all seems so amazing. I wonder how far over the pacific I will be when that feeling starts to fade. If only I knew someone at Air Canada who could bump me up to Business Class. Between now and my flight, I will be asking the universe for this to happen.
For now, my excitement and anticipation will have to carry me through.
