I knew it.
My mother called me up last night demanding that I cancel my trip. The conversation went something like this:
Mom: Are you still going???
Me: Yes, of course.
Mom: But its dangerous!
Me: I'm not letting some stupid terrorist plot ruin my vacation. They aren't going to scare me like that.
Mom [who is as stubborn or even more so than me, but starting to concede my point]: Well..... it is still dangerous.
Me: So if I die Chris at work has asked for my orchids.
Mom [starting to snicker]: That's horrible (but funny)!
Me: Yeah, they told me I was going to come back and find sticky notes with names on everything in my office.
Mom [laughing]: I still wish you weren't going but I know you won't back out.
Me [triumphant in my victory]: I get my stubbornness from you mom.
