Newark to London, Can’t Remember the Flight Number

Last year I got on the plane without thinking about cigarettes but this flight is longer and let’s be real I smoke much more now. I sent you the “I love you” text but didn’t get one back before we took off and yeah I’m afraid of crashing and yeah I’m afraid of death. My parents take us on vacations to save their marriage and I guess that’s better than having a baby but you can’t help wondering if any of us will make it out alive.
