I absolutely hate to fly

As I write this on my blackberry, I am on a train from Manchester to Cardiff …. And we are 15 minutes late

The reason for it is that the trains engine keeps failing … At almost every station it stops , the engine dies and the conductor has to start it again … So we are crawling our way to Cardiff were the train will make his last stop and be fixed I am sure

What makes it all ok is my paranoiac fear of flying … I tell myself .. Ok, so we 15 minutes late, i’ll just order a beer, sit back, relax and write a note for my blog… If I was on a plane that the engines kept shutting down, I doubt the stewardess would have time to bring me that beer before we became a hole in the ground.
