Mindful Eating

"No, eatables are allowed on the plane." Said a voice that was soft yet stern. 

He had no choice but to comply.

Going home was a definite priority over defying the rules of the TSA. 

He chose to empty all his pockets and walk towards his gate with sluggish steps while gnarling noise was accompanying him. His stomach muscles were squeezing tight as if wringing a cloth. 

Traveling in wee hours with no shop open, he chose to board the flight. 

Mark decided to eat mindfully from the tiny in-flight bag of pretzel that helped nourish his hunger pangs. 


In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story to nourish.

It's been a very long time since I flew, but I remember being quite unsatisfied with the meal at that time. :)

Home is what is nourishing this hungry traveler.

Even a bag or airplane pretzels can nourish when we eat mindfully.

Remembering back to the first time I ever flew when I was 17 and they How a full meal in economy class. Those were the days :)
