Thanks to a meeting agenda miscalculation, I'm currently killing time at Dallas Love Field airport while I wait for a flight that leaves in about three hours. I've already been here an hour.
I'm not willing to pay another $5.95 when my two hours of online access expires, so I'll probably have a delightful dinner at Chili's Too or some other airport food standby (Potbelly, California Pizza Kitchen, etc.). I'm not sure yet because I plopped down as soon as I saw a comfy chair/electrical outlet combo and thus have not yet explored the terminal.
As soon as my cab reached the airport, I made my way to the handicap stall in the restroom to change into jeans and sneakers before I checked my suitcase. It made me feel like a spy. (A spy whose feet immediately felt better.)
Dallas is one of those places I've only ever visited on business, so I have absolutely no idea what it's like outside of a couple of office buildings, the airport, and now the Galleria Mall because that's where my colleague and I shopped and had dinner last night. Oh, and the nearby Embassy Suites, which I now know has two beautiful swans living in a fountain in the lobby. They also have clear jugs of fruit-infused ice water in the lobby, which I want to recreate at home. I'd get some swans, too, but I think they're big enough to kick the cats' butts.
So that's my current reality. Once I run out of 'net access, I'll dig out "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies." If it looks like it won't make it through the whole flight, I'll go to the bookstore and buy something else.
How's your evening shaping up?
