It is really cold here in NYC. Manhattan just funnels the cold air up the long avenues and it is painful at times waiting for a light to change (when we are not j-walking). Here is me waiting in the freezing subway.
Monday, when I was waiting for the train to go into work I sat down on one of the benches that has individual seats (I assume to prevent people sleeping on them). The first thing I noticed in the past was how it felt to sit down. Tight, uncomfortable, my hips just too wide to fit comfortably. There was a period of time when I never sat down. I didn't want to impost my body on any one and I didn't want to be uncomfortable myself. So yesterday, when I went to sit down, I slid right in. My butt fit! It might seem silly or minuscule (no pun intended) but sitting in a normal size seat is a triumph.
I am so excited for the day when flying is the same way. Stay warm! -Meredith
