Okay, you would think, having been through a plane crash but then having to fly frequently for work, that I would have a coherent strategy for getting through flying. I don’t. More like:

  • Hold my wife’s hand during take-off and landing.
  • Try to figure out what I’m looking at on the ground when I stare out the window.
  • If there is low cloud cover, avoid looking out the window even a little bit when landing (can’t see the ground, can’t see the ground, can’t s — OH CRAP WE’RE GONNA — no wait, it’s fine it’s fine it’s fine).

Sorry, not much help. :-(
