I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Saturday reflections

A row of wheelchairs lined up to take in the view from La Guardia.

Both airports and wheelchairs are appropriate today -- the wheelchairs because of the previously mentioned stomach bug, which has lingered long past its overdue date, and has left me weak enough to make a wheelchair sound like a really good idea; and the airport, because I was supposed to be flying out this morning to spend Thanksgiving with friends.

I'm very disappointed (for some reason everyone I know is in serious need of huddling with loved ones these days) but honestly the thought of facing an airport -- frankly the thought of packing a suitcase -- was so overwhelming that I'm a little relieved as well. I know I'll be back to normal in a couple of days but that feels like forever from now.
