7 Fun Things To Do In An Airport Near You

As I've been traveling lately, I've spent much of the recent hours of my life sitting in airports. Without creativity, this time period would be deafeningly boring, which is why luckily for your next traveling endeavor, I have already formulated this list of the exciting things you can do in an airport near you.

1. Create a music video on a moving walkway.

During less busy hours, set your heart on making a dance routine using both lanes of the moving catwalk that would make even "OK Go" weep.

2. Try your luck at a luggage fort.

Using airport chairs, luggage, and jackets (for the ceiling of course); you can make a tight short term living space in just minutes that will provide privacy and a child-like feeling of pride for your meager accomplishment.

3. Carry a small sum of money and try to see how much you can buy.

Similar to Disneyland, and theme parks of all kinds, airport stores are infamously known for selling overpriced goods due to a lack of business competition. In spite of this, try carrying around as little as a dollar to see what kind of minuscule treat it brings.

4. Take a nap in an awkward place.

Remember when you were a kid and you would sleep in your closet or under your bed just for the thrill of it? That may have just been me, but regardless, sleeping in a place so obviously not meant for sleeping is a right of passage.

5. Play a human version of "Guess Who?"

This new people watching game, created by yours truly, can be either played with two players (similar how to the orginal game is played) by each player choosing a human and having the other player ask questions about their physical attributes until they find out who they are. Or, alternatively, a person could play by themself if they write down a random description of a person before setting out to find a person who fits these traits.

Make it a competition with yourself or your friends to find the wierdest thing in the airport.

So far, the winner of ˝weirdest thing in LAX˝ seems to be the Hillary Clinton nutcracker while the weirdest thing in the Copenhagen International airport seems to be an authentic deer skin kept in their ˝Scandinavian˝ section.

7. Another fun game that I like to play in the airport or other spaces flooded with tourists is the "Foreign vs. American˝ game in which one must guess if their chosen stranger is a local or a foreigner based on their clothes and general appearance. The contestant has won that round if after hearing the person speak, they find that their assumption was correct. Bonus points are given if the player can correctly assume the nationality of their stranger.

With these handy tips, you should be able to withstand at least forty-three minutes of airport torture.

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day
Cape Cod Irish

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation. It was the yearly benchmark announcing the end of the school year and the beginning of summer vacation. It meant I was one step closer to regattas, swim meets and tennis matches.
