Question: which do I dread most: surgery to implant a new pacemaker/defibrillator into my chest, or flying from between Austin and Minneapolis?
Without question, the airplane trip is worse -- even though the surgeons will stop my heart and reboot by firing off the new defibrillator to determine if it works. Not a comfy thought. But I dread the airline experience more.
I’ve come to hate flying and I used to love putting on a tie, paying three bucks for a Scotch and floating between destinations. I don’t fear flying.
I fear I may get so frustrated that I punch someone.
The glamor is gone. Flying used to be fun. Now it is a chore.
