frisking baby

so we all flew out for our winter stay in fl on new years day

and honestly
the strangest thing was
having my 3 month old experience a pat down
and i don't know
it made me not want to fly anymore
i think of sars and the plane i was on being "quarantined" in madrid
i think of having to stay seated for the last bit of flights into washington reagan
getting puked on by someone else's child while flying out to a funeral - strangely symbolic i suppose

i used to really enjoy flying
i even learned to fly a cessna 150
sunburnt in the winter
cool air
endless horizon

but it just isn't like that anymore
and i guess it just hit me how much i miss it
the way it was
and never will be again
