...but I'm not a pilot

I have done really well with speaking Russian, and I was very surprised how much I remembered. Today however, while buying a train ticket for Moscow my brain abandoned me (again).

The woman selling the ticket asked if I had any luggage, and the size of it.

I have this backpack, I said, and an AIRPLANE!!

I mixed up the words for suitcase and airplane (not even similar). She did have a sense of humour though and suggested I fly to Moscow in my airplane instead since the train probably couldn't take it.

I'm a little bit tired of making a fool of myself every two days or so. Train ride was nice.
