From Boarding Zone 5

b2 publishing : From Boarding Zone 5:
more than just pics of my feet in airports
(there are also some on park benches)


The best thing to happen to air travel since the drink coupon.


It is indeed the little things in life.
 
 
Case in point: listening to Houses of the Holy during take off is as decadent as the warm towels in First Class (I could only imagine.....really, I have to imagine. this puddle jumper only had one section - Wanting.
 
 
Not only did our cabin professional (flight attendant is so 2013) allow us to keep our small portable devices on during the entire flight to O'Hare, but she also prohibited the typical road-warrior practice of working email, or any other occupational pursuits for that matter, by announcing that laptops needed to remain stowed.
 
These simple, yet highly anticipated, tweaks to the commercial flying experience have allowed us to enter a new golden age of airline travel. It almost makes the layover in Chicago seem palatable. Almost.
 
The TSA and the big domestics have done their part.
 
 
NOW ITS OUR TURN:
 
  • REFUSE TO WORK ON THE PLANE
    • (unless of course you are writing a blog in the hopes of man shares leading to worldwide book sales and a subsequent cable special)
  • TAKE A NAP, WRITE A POEM, SPEAK TO ANOTHER HUMAN
    • (it won't hurt,...much. the nap and poem I mean, of course)
  • MEDITATE WITH YOUR EYES CLOSED WHILE LISTENING TO JONE PAUL JONES ABSOLUTELY NAIL THE KEYBOARD SOLO ON NO QUARTER
  • I PROMISE - THE EMAILS WILL STILL BE THERE WHEN YOU DEPLANE
  • YOU WILL BE BETTER RESTED AND RELAXED FOR THE THREE HOUR POWERPOINT 'READING' THAT AWAITS YOU IN DARWIN, MINNESOTA




 
(sorry for all the CAPS...I forgot that my earbuds were still in and didn't realize I was screaming.)
