Oh, be careful when you're flying


I was on a debate trip to Las Vegas right before spring break, it was just like a competition weekend and people were texting me like, "Oh, be careful when you're flying." Like my grandma had bought me a bunch of hand sanitizer and little wipes and things before. And I was definitely aware of it, and I was wiping things down, but that's kind of when I remember things... It being something I was thinking about, instead of it being something that was in the news, if that makes sense. It felt more personal then.
