TGI...Nevermind...

This whole business of having ultrasounds scheduled on Mondays needs to stop. I'm wishing my weekend away.

The other day, Zube Boy and I were discussing flying...

Z-Girl: I hate flying. It just doesn't seem right.

Z-Boy: What do you mean.

Z-Girl: I don't know. It's like, I totally don't get how the plane flies when nothing is, uh, flapping. Ya know?

Z-Boy: Flapping?

Z-Girl: Yeah. Like a bird. I mean, birds fly because their wings flap. So...

Z-Boy: *trying not so successfully to disguise a I Can't Believe My Wife Is Going to Say What She Is About to Say smirk* So what?

Z-Girl: I'm getting there. Geez. SOOOOOO, for flying in a plane to make sense to me the wings should FLAP. Then I would get it.

Z-Boy: Wow.

Anyway, we're idling by around these parts. Avoiding any discussion of all things pregnant. It seems the safest route. I'm really nervous. I hope with all my heart that the ultrasound will go swimmingly on Monday. But, I'm prepared for the worst.

Hang in there... and enjoy the weekend. Your nerves are certainly justified, but you've got a lot of us crossing our fingers (and flapping them in earnest.)

that's the kind of thing I would say, makes perfect sense to me too. Good luck Monday, thinking of you babe

I totally agree with you about wings and flapping. Why is that so hard to understand? Hope that all goes well on Monday and that Odd's heart is dancing to the beat!

Probably shouldn't say this, because it usually freaks people out even more, but actually airplane wings do flap. In a way. The wings aren't rigid, like most people think. They actually flex and twist while the plane if flying. If you sit at a window seat a little behind the wing, you can actually see it flapping a bit in the wind. :)

But really, flapping isn't necessary for flight. Just look at flying fish, or flying squirrells, or a kite, or time. All those fly without flapping wings.

I'll be sending all my thoughts your way tomorrow, Zube.

And, for the record, I agree with Phil. Just don't tell anybody. ;)

Actually if the wings WERE flapping (more than the little bit described by Phil) we'd be in BIG trouble. I read part of a pilot training manual. There's alnmost no way they CAN'T fly, the way they're designed and with all the things you can't see going on.
