It turns out I can get hooked up to the 'net in a remote location, and when said location is a convention for women bloggers and the wireless network is incapable of handling the traffic from all those women, blogging, the ethernet cable works great. I got to post with pictures and everything.
I like to see what people wear when they travel, so in the airport I do a lot of people watching and take notice of the various ensembles. I have learned something from doing this, and I am here to impart that knowledge to you. To be truly comfortable while traveling, one needs to dress in a skirt or a dress with sandals. The whys and wherefores are as follows:
1. It minimizes, no, it eliminates the issue of bare legs sticking to vinyl seats. It doesn't matter if there is air conditioning, your legs will ALWAYS stick to vinyl. It's the lesser-known law of physics.
2. You will not be the victim of too-large looking legs when you sit down and your leg fat spreads. (Yes, you; we all have this problem, even if there is no fat; when you sit, whatever is there, spreads.)
3. You will never again feel the effects of sleep deprivation nor experience crow's feet. Allright, so it won't solve all your problems, but it will solve other things. Like the other three, listed right here.
4. Sandals make flying these days more bearable, on that you can rely. Think about this: if you have a laptop as your carry-on, you must remove it from its bag and send it through the conveyor belt x-ray machine separately, and then repackage it on the other side. You also have to deal with having at the ready your id and your boarding pass, and if you wore athletic shoes, untying, removing and then retying your shoes while keeping an eye on your purse, laptop, and various and sundry children for whom you are responsible.
I say, who needs it? (The hassle, not the children.)
Make life easier and reduce the amount of visible leg fat? It's practically my new motto.
