Sabrina: You look like you’re getting ready for battle.
Ying: In a way, I am. I’m flying home next week to be with my family over the holidays and you know what holiday travel is like.
Sabrina: I’ve flown during peak travel season before, and now, I try to avoid it at all costs.
Ying: Well, I can’t this year, so I’m arming myself for the experience. I booked my flights back in September and I have my seat assignment. I’ll print out my boarding passes before I head for the airport, and I’ll keep checking the flight status to make sure the flight is on time.
Sabrina: I hope you don’t have any tight connections.
Ying: I change planes in Chicago, but I have two hours in between flights. I’m hoping that’ll be enough.
Sabrina: What’s in that huge bag?
Ying: Those are my supplies. If I get snowed in or if my flight gets cancelled, I’m ready to spend the night in the airport.
Sabrina: Wow, you really thought this out. You’re ready for the worst-case scenario.
Ying: Forewarned and forearmed. You won’t catch me napping!
