Tomorrow we leave on a five-day trip to San Francisco. I'm attending a vendor symposium at a swank downtown hotel, rock on.
Only problem is, we obviously have to fly there. On a commercial airliner. I haven't flown since September 11th, and I'm very anxious about the flight. I had assumed that this was just normal jitters after what happened that awful day, but I can sense my anxiety ramping up rapidly as the actual flight approaches. I have no idea how bad it'll get, but I'm definitely not looking forward to getting on that aircraft tomorrow.
Some people have scoffed at me, a pilot, being afraid to fly. My only defense is, well, I'm not afraid to fly my own plane.
