#ThinkingThursday #SOLC Day 14

I am participating in the Two Writing Teachers Slice of Life challenge. Each day in March teachers from around the country post to their blogs and the Two Writing Teachers website. We read and comment on each other’s posts

Today’s post is centered around a question for you dear readers:

What fun fact would you share if you were being interviewed on a podcast?

A follow-up question for you is: Have you ever been on a podcast?

While thinking of what fun fact to share consider these ideas –

  • Do you have hidden talents?
  • Have you met someone interesting?
  • What are you obsessed with?
  • What is the most unusual thing you own?

What is my fun fact?

If I were on a podcast I would share a story of my intuition as my fun fact.

I used to be afraid to fly and for my last job we flew quite a few times a year for training. I had set my mindset that the pilot and the flight attendants were not going to willing get on a plane knowing it would go down so I calmed myself with that idea and also a breathing exercise from my yoga training.

[Side note here: As I have been reflecting over the last couple of weeks I have realized I really miss teaching my yoga classes! Back to regularly scheduled programming…]

Anyway, so we were to fly to New York and I was panicking about this trip for over a week before which I had not been doing for months. I tried to reframe my mindset, I talked to my coworkers who assured me flying is safer than driving, I did my breathing exercises, etc. Nothing helped the impending doom hanging over this trip.

We are in line at the airport and what do you know!? The flight is canceled due to MECHANICAL DIFFICULTIES. Luckily, they put us on a different plane to fly East. This plane was smaller than one my son made with Legos so the crashing thoughts came back. We did make it there and had an interesting van ride from Jersey to New York but I am still here to tell the tale!

Please share your fact in the comments below.

Bonus question: Yes! I have been on a podcast! You can read about it and find that here. #happyslicing!
