Here is another Escape Pod Emulation! A warm welcome to author, Christy Birmingham!
So here I am, in this e-pod, and I’m feeling a bit claustrophobic. I better slow down my breathing to conserve the oxygen. Luckily, if I feel lightheaded, it won’t really matter too much as I’m not steering this contraption.
I settle into the console chair, knowing I’ll be here a while, and open up the cloth bag that rests on my lap. Inside, I find my five things here. Only five. It was quite the ordeal to decide what to take with me. I take out each item, one by one.
1. A Book. I find security in the familiarity of the book Surfacing by Margaret Atwood, which I have read several times and contains a handwritten note from my mom on the first page.

          Oh yes we all need something to calm our nerves, whatever outlet or “thing” it may be. Sometimes it’s a hug, other times Candy Crush. Actually, I’ve never played it!

    Christy, I’m already feeling claustrophobic! Great post and love your selection of items – I’ve never heard to that Magaret Attwood book and will check it out. Oh yes, I always like to take my own pillow along and chair dancing! I’ll have to try that next time stuck in traffic. Teddies are one of life’s necessities – I have Minky who has come on most of my travels (and very careworn too!).
