You’re probably wondering what I was wearing that day, and I’d tell you, because it was a farewell gesture, but I don’t remember.  I have spent a good enough amount of time trying to remember exactly what I was wearing, because in any type of momentous life changing event, the ability to describe in detail what one was wearing has always been  of a certain magnitude of which I still struggle to understand.  I, am of course, only human.  But I do remember my carry on item was “Pride and Prejudice”.  My English teacher had suggested it but I couldn’t make it past the first few pages, instead choosing to be surly on the plane.  The characters in that book just seemed too, three dimensional for me.
