“Welcome to New York”

At the airport everyone’s trolley announced “Welcome to New York”. Mine didn’t. Never thought it would really turn out to be a nightmare.

Start of the journey:
Though I have been to this place twice before, I have an uncanny feeling that something is going to go wrong.

During the journey:
Feelings of unsurity surround me. There is strange cloud of reservedness around me which does not make me respond to things that people usually would.
I am smug and quiet as if nothing has happened. Now that makes me scared. I should be feeling the transition. I don’t.

Towards the end of journey:
As a friend puts, “Of all the connection flights, you had to miss only this one. Irony…”
Ma’am you have missed the flight, she tells me. I quiet don’t know what to make of it.

Well, I kind of expected that. When truckloads of people are waiting for their immigrations before you, something starts ticking at back of you mind. And then, when you just can’t find your bags, the tick-tock gets confirmed, and when at customs the officer calls his junior and tells him, “You have not handled this form earlier. Take her case…Don’t worry young lady, it will just take a minute more”, thats creme-de-la-creme. And the labyrinth, that JFK is, you know its just very hard to get on that flight. So, when I reacheth wading through all the formalities to get my boarding pass for the 1840 flight sharp at 1840, I am turned down.

For the last 2 years I have been flying, I had seen my details being noted down(just-in-case-something-happens), or officers looking through bags, or being questioned about my luggage and I even had one lady inspector fishing out a plastic bag from my luggage to find something(I suspect, she thought I was carrying a revolver) but never had I had a missed flight. SO, it was also kind of in-store.
