We plan, God laughs

That time you were literally on an airplane waiting to take off, reading a book about stress and how one can train their brain to perceive stressful moments as learning opportunities, when across the aisle — because you could not get seats together— your son releases the smallest turd, right before the flight attendant that the airplane will be going Nowhere because the toilets won’t flush, and there are no flights for days, so you find yourself stranded with a sick toddler and no computer, two diapers and a husband who was once stranded in Alaska so he actually knows things, amidst a global pandemic and an snowstorm, so screaming, you let go of all plans and expectations, stumble towards the Lesson, all together towards the closest Children’s aquarium.
