My left eyelid has been twitching incessantly for three days. This only happens when I achieve a state which my familiy refers to as "wound". I think it came from the original "wound up", but evolved into simply "wound".

I only get wound in anticipation of large events that require a great deal of planning. It's not the flying that I'm nervous about, though I do not particularly enjoy flying with a baby, especially alone. It's the actual preparation. I don't know what tragedy I think is going to befall me if I forget my razor or my pajama pants, it's not as though there are no stores in North Carolina. Even in the boonies of the beach we have a Food Lion. I'm just inexplicably wound. And my eyelid is exceptionally jumpy. I'm vexed.
