Rocking away at Philly International

  Posted by Picasa

I'm sitting at the Philadelpha airport with two hours to spare to meet up with my traveling companion... and thinking about the best way to kill time in a airport...

Sit in the rocking chairs provided to look out over the gates as the planes taxi in and out (with no cushions, I opt for the padded bench seats).
Read USA Today from front to back -
Look for an electrical outlet to recharge electronics -
Camp out and people watch people watching other people -
Get a shoe shine -
Eat a overpriced sandwich at a restaurant - on this particular day, slow service and slower food preparation was welcomed - I still gave a decent tip because my waitress was very much pregnant - ten months if that's possible!
Squat in the A, B or C que line for a Southwest flight -
Walk the length of the terminal for exercise -
Take in the community art on the walls -
Admire the advertising for your favorite products -

On the last three flights, I get engaged in a conversation about Treo smartphones and end up showing people how to set alarms, play music, view photos and beam address cards - fun stuff !
