i am not a stuffed tiger.

back in seattle

I switched to NyQuil once I had made my connection at DTW and spent most of the five hour flight half asleep, listening to my iPod. Both of the other guys in my row were similarly listening to iPods, but did not appear to be burdened with a cold/flu. I now understand why kids cry during landings. I felt like it was really possible that I'd suffer permanent damage to my eardrums from the weird pressure changes.

Since arriving in Seattle, I've been shuttling from bed to couch with my down comforter (conveniently, my apartment isn't heated during the day) and am feeling a little better. Whether this is due only to the miracle of modern over the counter medication remains to be seen.

Up until I was about 10, I always got the horrible pressure feelings in my ears when landing.

It's AWFUL.

pure agony!

I hadn't ever experienced that misery. Now I feel more sympathy for those kids, who I'd just assumed to be kind of whiny.
