I was going to spend the weekend doing something more exciting than sitting around the house and knitting, but I seem to have caught the flu that has been raging through my workplace. I’ve been spending the weekend so far sitting around moaning about how crappy I feel and watching my new-found love, Grey’s Anatomy.
Evan had put the first season on my ipod for me and I watched the first couple of episodes of the show as I was coming back from Oregon on Monday. Combining the medical drama with the fact that I was leaving behind some of my favorite people (and their teeny, tiny baby) proved to be too much for me and I spent the majority of the flight sobbing. Lucky Evan got to pick up his tear-stained wife at the airport.
Thankfully, I am not alone in the crying on airplanes thing. There was a “This American Life” episode that talked about this exact phenomenon. Listen to it while I sit on the couch, eating orange sherbet and moaning about how sick I am.
