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….
Thankfully there's usually a bookstore or magazine stand in the airport, so I would just hit that up. Probably I wouldn't buy any books (because they never seem to have any decent books) so it would be all about the magazines for me. A little People, some Entertainment Weekly, maybe even a Cosmo or a Rolling Stone. If things were really desperate, I could probably even bring myself to stock up on Star, Intouch, or Life&Style. Classy. I know.
