Exhausted and Something that Freaks Me Out

I have been a wee bit MIA this week. We had an event I put together for our clients at a really beautiful outdoor location. Problem was, it was 95 degrees on said date. Long story short, it went off without a hitch and was absolutely wonderful…and no one died or passed out.
BUT!
I am wiped. I just caught up on all my blog reading (all 150 posts) and I was hoping to write a decent post this evening. Instead I am going to tell you about something that freaks me out.

Clouds.

They are just fine if you are watching them from Earth but they completely and totally freak me out when I am in a plane. I look at them. I see how fluffy they are and how it really does seem like you could lay and snuggle in them and fall fast asleep.  It is a very comforting thought. The problem is, the other half of my brain kicks in. I have visions of me jumping out of the plane onto the soft cloud THEN PLUMMETING THROUGH IT. Cloud vapor follows me, cartoon-like as I careen out the bottom of what was supposed to be my snuggley cloud-bed. I fall faster and faster, screaming, mouth wide open, flapping like a British Carshow TV Personality Driving an Atom.

I am not joking. I have this vision every time I am in a plane, some times many times if it is a long flight…and we are traveling over a canyon of some sort. I visibly shudder and try to wish my floatation device into parachute.

I hope you enjoyed that little slice of my psyche. Feel free to sit far away from me on a plane. I completely understand.  Sorry if I have provided you with a new fear.  It was really not my intention.

    First of all, the heat was absolutely ridiculous this past week.
    Second, that is why I have never used a Google reader.
    Third, yes on the clouds! Every time I fly I have the same thoughts–that they look so dreamlike and comforting at first glance, but then they start to fade into the whispy things and I realize they’re actually just filled with environmental crap and I would sail right through. We would be great seat partners…

       I really just thought I was a total freak about them considering even kids know they are just flipping air.  Plan our trip. :)
