I was reading a short story called "Love is a fallacy" by Max Shulman and came across this phrase whose meaning I cannot get. Could you help me out?
One afternoon I found Petey lying on his bed with an expression of such distress on his face that I immediately diagnosed appendicitis. "Don't move," I said, "Don't take a laxative. I'll get a doctor."
"Raccoon," he mumbled thickly.
"Raccoon?" I said, pausing in my flight.
"I want a raccoon coat," he wailed.
What does he mean by "pausing in my flight"?
Thanks in advance.
