It all started with the flight to Canada and the reassuring words of the flight attendants. . .(insert title of my blog). What do they mean by non-traditional? If the seat cushion was such a wonderful floatation device, why aren't they selling them at Target as a new pool accessory. You just don't see them anywhere. So then I start imagining myself in the Pacific Ocean, hanging on to my seat, when I realize from watching so many animated ocean crashes, that I would end up being a "floater" along with a few bits of luggage. If only it was all that simple. Same with my life--how many times have I grabbed for my seat cushion and discovered that is just wasn't quite enough to sustain my weight. I really needed that parachute prior to the "crash" or maybe just a stiff drink.
