It's funnier the longer you play it too. Well, pre-Covid it was.

Pay $18 for a gin and tonic, eat nachos at 10 am, buy a Cosmo magazine, sample a million lotions and perfumes at duty free, make up back stories in my head for interesting strangers I see.Β

I had airport nachos on my last business trip a month ago and they were not great :(

The beer made them better though :)

Smash a pint at 5 AM at a UK airport in the in-house wetherspoons for Β£3:50. Realise you have ten minutes after several pints to get to your gate. Wildly run towards the gate and just get in and then order the ol' G&T on the plane.Β

Random things I've done at airports:

1. Paid for someone's coffee without introducing me or talking to the guy.
2. Counted security cameras.
3. Collected trash other people left.
4. Drove a cart.
5. Went to the wrong bathroom.

Always get there way to early and therefor have to go to the bar and get a drink, it is necessary to kill time

Get a McFlurry from McDonald's. There was a period when I was doing a lot of travel around Europe (weren't we all...) - a couple of days here, couple of days there, then back home. I noticed each country seemed to have a special edition/local McFlurry. So I'd get one in each new airport. Not great for the waistline.
