Not too long ago, I used to be touring to London from California. As I used to be getting off of the airplane, I reached as much as get my (very a lot overpacked) keep on bag. As soon as I’d grabbed my bag and was decreasing it down, I felt a well-recognized “Pop!” on my ribcage. You recognize that sound… the sound when your underwire breaks?
Just a few alternative phrases (that we don’t publish, right here at TCF) got here to thoughts. My underwire had snapped. I nonetheless had a six-hour flight forward of me. I used to be not wanting ahead to sitting in a cramped seat with a wire stabbing me each time I moved.
