Did you know that flying directly into a 130 mph headwind will not only cause you to be 30 minutes late but will also cause you to feel as though you've just been through the spin cycle? I discovered this yesterday. I am a bad flyer. B-A-D and require Xanax and wine to get me through the calmest of flights. Yesterday when the flight was so bumpy I couldn't pour my tiny bottle of wine into my cup I drank directly from the bottle. Yeah. I did. And the dude next to me? Looked at me enviously and bought a bottle for himself.
I will say this for Air Canada however, excellent cheesy movie selection. I totally watched Mad Money without fear of judgement. And then I clutched the seat in front of me and drank from the bottle for the next 2 hours in hopes that doing that would take away the knowledge that I was being shaken like a rag doll.
Good times. And I get to do it again today. And tomorrow. Let's all hope that the winds have died down and the flight is calm or I will wipe Air Canada out of their wine supplies. Also, possibly clutch the stranger in the seat beside me. Rock and roll.
