trying not to tempt fate

I'm off again. no, not off my rocker. off to Austin. this time it's the wedding festivities weekend. this time I had an equally odd send-off.

another show before heading out of town. another run-in with various people including one certain friend. another fun night out despite the discomfort. and this time I'm not solely talking about the interaction with my friend.

honestly, I'm a little worried about tomorrow. I'm not typically superstitious (except that it's completely my mom's fault the home team couldn't pull off the win Sunday, since she didn't wear her jersey to the game as she had all season). but this is different.

the last time I went to see Cake at the Fillmore, was the night before September 11th. tonight was a great show. got to hang out with a bunch of very cool people. but I was careful not to enjoy it too much. I didn't want to tempt fate.

I know it's completely unreasonable, but I'm frightened to fly tomorrow. although I'm sure nothing will go wrong, sometimes silly unconscious fears can rattle around in my head so much that they begin to effect my conscious thought.

Holy crap, you go to a lot of weddings!!!

Don't worry, all will be well. Have a glass of wine, grab a good novel, and put some headphones on to get through your flight.

I totally know what you mean about the superstitions. I totally don't believe in them but sometimes I wonder if I really do. Flying is great. So relaxing. You will be fine. Have a great time and I am sorry about the Broncos (although I'm glad for my hubby's sake.)

You're fine. I hate flying too. i'm going through that now with my pending flights to Ireland. it almost ruins my vacation i worry about it so much.

oh well...what can you do? you can't stop living becuase of your fears.

What flight are you taking to Ireland??? I loved taking Air Canada, nice and roomy. I think they went bankrupt. I hated Aer Lingus (the second Ireland trip)... too cramped.

Are you safe RG?
