Today I leave for Sweden.
I am so excited I can barely contain myself.
The only reason I’m not jumping out of my skin with enthusiasm is that the flights are 9 and 3 hours long.
With a 2 hour layover in Iceland.
I am not the world’s most chill airplane traveler, despite the fact that I’ve flown small planes.
For some reason, although I know it’s a big, safe sky bus, it makes me nervous.
And when I get nervous, I pick at my nails.
And I REALLY don’t want to ruin my Swedish manicure.
Yeah, I bought blue and yellow gel nail polish and yellow striping and I gave myself a Swedish manicure.
Just because I can.
So cross your fingers, say a prayer, and think good thoughts for me as I rocket through the skies toward Stockholm.
