Quick! It’s an emergency! You just got an urgent call about a family emergency and had to rush to the airport with barely time to grab your wallet and your passport. But now, you’re stuck at the airport with nothing to read. What do you do??

And, no, you did NOT have time to grab your bookbag, or the book next to your bed. You were . . . grocery shopping when you got the call and have nothing with you but your wallet and your passport (which you fortuitously brought with you in case they asked for ID in the ethnic food aisle). This is hypothetical, remember….


After these past few weeks, I would just sit still and try to clear my head.  I would either meditate or write in my journal (if I somehow had it in my wallet). Otherwise, I would people watch and daydream.  I might even start planning my wedding or enjoying whatever I won from this contest.
