Well, this might calm your fears. You'll be flying at approximately 30,000 feet in the air at a speed of around 600 miles per hour. Don't worry, if the jet crashes....it'll be over in a heartbeat, no pain, just a quick exit out of this world and before you know it you'll be sayin' hello to all your loved ones who passed on before you.

Feel better?

I recommend you start drinking heavily.

Well, at least while you are on the plane. It always helps me. I know that if I am ever on a plane that is going to crash, I DON'T want to be sober.

But really, you'll be fine. Get a drink and try to relax. It's only Oklahoma.

Take a thorazine, or a couple of Ambiens. They work well. Better living through chemistry, I always say.
(Thorazine may require some help from the flight crew to get you off the plane, however ).

Also, it isn't over in a second. It takes a while to go from 30k feet to auger in at ground level, and everyone on the plane knows about it. It's never a surprise. I've studied the phenonemon in detail professionally.

Geez! What encouragement! Sorry about that.

Really tho - Don't worry about it! Flying is FUN! (Just keep telling yourself that).

If you get into the plane early enuf, tell the flight attendant that you're not a particularly happy camper, and you'd like to look out the front window before take-off. They may let you look around in the cockpit and meet the drivers.

Valium ... valium ... valium. For a couple reasons:
1. It will calm you down
2. It is the best thing to calm the nerve that causes motion sickness. I'm very prone to motion sickness and when I went on a 3-day cruise a few years ago, it was the only thing that made it possible for me to leave my cabin for more than a couple hours at a time.

Also, I've found that wearing one of the tiki pendants you recently created has so far brought me all kinds of good luck. So give that a try too.

Have fun!

Seriously brethren, flying IS safer than driving. There hasn't been a major airline accident in this country since Nov. 2001. Breathe easy.

hope you have a safe flight. I also don't care to fly. You arre confined hours in a small space with people you have nnevver met before. Oh how air travel has changed. A week before 9-11 I met a guy in the airport bar and we drank a whole botttle of cabo wabo on the plane. I was suppose to show up in New Jersey with 3 bottles of cabo...I arrived with only 2.......ooopsadaisy!

Howdy Kirby...due to a lack of Okie-Tiki, maybe you can enjoy some other local fun? 'Cow-tipping' and 'Couch-Surfing' are as much fun as a bug zapper and a six-pack of Mickey's!!!
