Undoubtedly the most mind numbing thing to do is to wait for few hours at an airport before the flight. There are a few ways to get away with this agony. ‘Grab a Beer’ is the most common one! I could understand why a beer is priced so high in the airports because that’s an easier and old fashioned way to kill time but not the best way. To start with one can leave some liquid in the hand baggage to be detected by the X-ray machine, which will give the airport security to get on to his job while he/she ransacks your hand baggage. You can stand there with a dumb face till the whole thing ends. If one don’t mind getting frisked leave your apartment key in your pocket, this could help with couple of minutes. Then its the duty free section! Go around till you get dizzy due to a cocktail of fragrance in the air from the test perfume bottles and tipsy gazing at the liquors. Hmm!! Another few more of minutes lost. Now it is time to look for your gate. You don’t have to be selfish by looking for only your flight. But can look for other flights and destinations, airlines flying to destinations, check if they are on time, if not sympathize for others. More importantly this improves ones geography knowledge. All this is not enough, when you have found the gate and reached there before an hour. Now select a random person and start hating him/her for whatever reason, believe me it’s so easy to hate random person. If you have recently watched a crime/thriller flick image yourself to be a sleuth, secretly observing a terror suspect, while your mind voice asking “What has he got in his bag? Why is he moving around suspiciously” “Why is he going to the wash room quite often!!!”

Now if nothing is enough, ‘Grab a Beer’ J
