Calm in a crisis

Thursday, February 5, 2009

I like to think of myself as a fairly cool, calm and collected person. But in reality, I'm not. Well, not really. I especially think this is true in a crisis. After watching this footage, I wondered how I would have reacted if I were on the plane. Answer? Probably not great. I imagine I would have been one of those hysterical people they would have had to knock out and drag out, just to keep everything moving.

To be honest, I've never really been involved in a major crisis, and judging by the way I've reacted to small crises, that's probably a good thing. I'm just so sensitive! I mean, I cried at a Nutri Grain commercial the other night for goodness sake!! Sheesh.

Hubs on the other hand, well, he would have been one of those people trying to keep us hysterics calm and in control. I don't know how he does it! How he keeps a clear head and cool exterior when chaos is all around him. (Chaos, usually being Wifey).

I like to think I'll be better at this once I "grow up", but I'm still waiting for that to happen. I'll keep you posted!

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one who cries at stuff like that!!! I don't know why things affect me, but I do catch myself getting all choked up at odd things.


    Kleenex ads are also bad news for me. Oh, and don't even get me STARTED on watching the Olympics medal ceremonies. Pass the Kleenex please... aw look at the little duckling! *sob*
