It terrifies me on a daily basis. Not contracting whooping cough. Just having to watch this horrific commercial.
We had a baby sitting directly behind us on today's flight. And no, I'm not going to complain about her crying, because I am a mother and I have mad sympathy for anyone flying with children.
I am going to delicately mention that I'm 99% sure this baby had whooping cough. Every time she coughed/struggled for air, I died a little bit inside. I'm sure her mom wouldn't take her on a plane if she had some dark ages infectious disease, but it sounded painful.
I hope adhering to a strict Magnolia Bakery diet while on my trip boosted my immune system to the point that I won't be coming down with whatever she was coughing into my hair for the duration of the two hour flight.
