Ethan has by all accounts done rather well on the plane rides he's already taken in his life, including the time we covertly changed his about-to-burst pee diaper in-flight. But if I'm going to be skeptical of him, it's only fair that I share with you some of my own in-flight, uh, dramas:
- I once saw this huge glowing thing in the sky that I for serious began to worry was an approaching UFO. After a while I realized it was the moon. Have you seen that thing from a plane? It's HUGE.
- I once had to have the flight attendant bring me a full glass of orange juice to spike my blood sugar and keep me from passing out on a trans-Atlantic flight while watching the surprisingly faint-inducing Sense & Sensibility.
- I once almost passed out while in a descent during my pregnancy, and I'm not really sure why.
- I once might have clung to my brother in that united-by-trauma style often seen in films during a lightning storm on a flight to New Mexico.
