I’ve spent way too much time in airports lately, but my time loss is Grammarian-in-the-City’s gain, because those hours yielded some interesting material for this blog.
First up is a sign in JFK Airport that I stared at for what seemed like hours (because it actually was hours — the plane was late):
Good advice. I hate collaborating alone.
Moving on, I saw this advertisement in Madrid’s Barajas Airport:
I’m not sure what a “deli flight” is, but I’m certain that I didn’t have one. I’m pretty sure I don’t want one, either.
Speaking of Barajas, the map of stores and other amenities in Terminal 4 included this item:
The number 15 corresponds to a spot on the map (I think), so that’s one mystery solved. I never did find the “Hour Passion” store to see what it was selling. I’m not sure I want to know.
My ideal airport would let me get in, get on, and get out as quickly as possible. Too bad that ideal never becomes remotely real. If you’re flying during the holidays, good luck! Feel free to send me any interesting signs you encounter.
