Abstract

Because your mother is the Typhoid Mary

of travel. Because lightning, blizzards,

everything but locusts, plague her travel days.

Because that one time in Minneapolis,

some pilot-error, failing engine part, or

threat of nuclear disaster necessitated

an overnight stay, she now refuses to fly.
