I don’t know what it is about airplanes and airports, but people just talk to each other. “where are you headed?” “what line of work are you in?” Etc etc. And what never ceases to amaze me is the ease at which people answer the questions. It seems that we as human beings are pretty open to answering questions (as long as we don’t know the person asking them and there is a good chance we may never meet again).
What also never ceases to amaze me is how weird people are. I mean, really, did you need to wear your weekend sweats with your grossest t-shirt? Oh, you need to wear that really smelly perfume/cologne. I mean did you look at a mirror on your way out? Hello, people! You’re in PUBLIC!
But you know what? It actually makes travel fun. You can pretty much play airport bingo, haha. Lady with crazy hair? check. Guy with annoying cough? check. Screaming kid? Check. You really can insert what you want and you’ll probably find it, if you know where to look.
