Counting down the days in a cocktail of anticipation. Excitement for what may come and anxiety over what I leave behind. Despite my most stalwart assurances to my mother that I will be leaving the entirety of my preparation to the last minute, I have, in fact, been gathering slowly. I’m allowed one carry on and two checked bags, and am absolutely fascinated by the prohibited items listed for the flight. Although I am prohibited from bringing spear guns and knives in my carry on luggage, I was pleased to discover that toy transformer robots are A-OK. I will, of course, be taking advantage of that allowance and packing my lucky Fixit micromaster transformer. Other than that and a few items of clothing, the rest of my baggage has yet to be determined. I aim to pack light.
Oh — and I also recently had the great pleasure of calling Scandinavian Airlines to confirm passport information and to assure the authorities that I am not a terrorist. Standard procedure nowadays it would seem.
