In the first episode of the NBC series Chuck (which I LOVE), Chuck Bartowski tells his CIA handler, Sarah, that he’s freaking out.
I had a moment of that yesterday when I realized that I would shortly be away from home in a war zone. No kidding, I totally freaked in the middle of the Texas Roadhouse restaurant while trying to enjoy a steak.
There is only one way I can describe how I’m feeling. It’s like you have to vomit, but you can’t. Still, you know that if someone else vomited, you probably would blow chunks. Actually, a better analogy is this. It’s exactly how I felt about five minutes before my wedding.
Fortunately, that’s turned out pretty good.
