Being stuck in a terminal for six more hours would be the best way for me to catch up on my books. As I look at my kitchen table right now, I have a regretful sensation because I have to return my pile of library books which I’ve renewed two times already and didn’t even finish half way through them. Ever since I started this blog, I have been neglecting my reading time a bit. . . OK, completely; and unlike some people I know, electronics devices are not essential to my daily life.
To be able to read with abandonment is a luxury I can’t afford right now, but if you force me to do so, hey, well! I’m not going to fight you. Yes, I know, you can only read so much before you start getting symptoms of restless legs syndrome, but even then, I can and would walk around with an open book in my hand. I don’t mind it if appears that I’m weird and antisocial, or as my medically oriented daughter would say, “It should be said, a-social, mom!” whatever.
Give me a book, or a writing pen and some paper. I’ll have no trouble spending six additional hours plus travel time without electronic devices. The moment I had a chance, I would read and write quotes from the book to increase the variety of things to do. It would be a needed opportunity to sit in the lap of luxury and enjoy a little bit of me time.
You’re at the airport, your flight is delayed for six more hours, and none of your electronic devices is working. How do you pass the time?
