The facts:

The mister and I might be taking a short trip (one week).

We probably won’t be taking our boys. Possibly. But probably not.

The plane trip will be about twelve hours long and involves flying over long stretches of water.

Plane incidents are on the increase (okay, I don’t have any studies or concrete evidence, but this is how it seems to me).

The question:

Is the mister wrong for looking at me with resignation in his eyes as he agrees to my demand request that he and I travel on seperate planes?


PS This might all be academic, because I have just watched the woman at the Post Office CUT MY PASSPORT UP, because – so she says – they can’t issue me a new one while I’ve still got the old one.
