I was going to show some photos I'd taken in the past month....
I was going to tell you how I brought an extra pair of socks so I could throw away the ones I wore through security. I hate walking sock-footed through security and then having to put my shoes back on.
And then I was going to tell you I was not as grossed out by my small town airport's flooring condition as I thought I would be, and I was brave and kept my socks.
However, as a follow up, I should probably tell you that I came home and washed my shoes, because they did have a little bit of airport security scunge in them.
I could feel it.
I was going to tell you that my goal in life is to avoid ever having to use an airplane restroom.
With three fairly short flights each way, I'm happy to say I achieved that goal.
I was going to tell you that the revolving seat covers in the restrooms in the Chicago airport are highly suspicious.
In case you've never been, the seats have a plastic wrap that revolves when you wave your hand over a sensor. I would imagine it's a great idea, but I (and I'm sure everyone else who has ever used one) really wondered if it just keeps recycling the same old plastic.
Maybe next time I pass through the Windy City, I'll take a sharpie, write my name on the plastic seat cover, and then see how many sensor hand waves it takes for it to come back around.
I'm going to sincerely hope it never comes back around.
So, between the seat cover obsession and the sock story, are you seeing a pattern here?
I was going to tell you that they don't even serve pretzels or peanuts on the airplane anymore. But they do let you buy overpriced snackboxes.
But.....after I'd spent my first two flights putting together the photos for the post, the Chicago airport internet let me down.
It kept telling me it would be back in a second, but it lied.
It's hard to upload photos and draft a post with no internet.
So here we are, almost two weeks later.
Not that it matters, because these faces were worth the wait, don't ya think?
