Coming back from a vacation
There should be a security checkpoint when you leave the airplane
I’m sorry sir, you can’t bring more than 3.4 ounces of regret from your trip
For the museums you didn’t get to
The restaurants where you ordered the wrong dish
The photo op you missed
The day trip you didn’t take
The city you wish you’d visited instead.
Please empty all your pockets of any baggage you picked up while away
Anxieties about the work you left undone before you left
The money you shouldn’t have spent
That petty fight over which train to catch on the first day that really both of you like to think you have forgotten.
Not everything will fit in the overhead bin of life
So travel light on your journey home.
