Let me contemplate, this snack on my plate. Well, my tray, but who’s counting?
Flying freaks me out. A very efficient way to travel, but super stressful for me. A tube full of people, coasting through the sky for hours, you’re stuck. There is no turning back option. Ugh, and the noise and turbulence.
I didn’t fly as a kid, we didn’t take trips like that. I had this idea in my head though that when I finally did, the airline would give me little metal wings. I think I saw it in a movie or something. Well, that never happened. Each flight I waited and each flight, I never received them.
This flight home was freaking me out as much as any other flight I’ve taken. Maybe a little more since I had never heard of the airline. I felt like I was getting in the car with a stranger, it felt weird. To try to curb my anxiety, I started reading through the pamphlets that were in the seat pocket in front of me. I found some new spots Florida I want to hit. I learned that the airline was 15 years old, so that was reassuring. Then, near the back of the booklet, there it was…the inflight kids snack pack, complete with little gold wings. I had to have it. Bonus, it came with giant Goldfish. I’m partial to mini things, but how could giant Goldfish be bad?
Well, I overestimated the Goldfish goodness. Definitely better as a mini snack, as most things are. I didn’t care, I finally had my wings! Nothing but smiles from that point on. Thanks Allegiant, for making my wing dreams come true, even if I had to pay for it.
