Succinctly yours: Airport

This challenge is hosted at Grandma's Goulash and you can write either 140 characters or 140 words, based on a photo provided by Grandma. You also have the option to include a Word of the Week.

Word of the Week: PROCRASTINATE


It’s always the same with airlines. Rush us down to the departure gate then procrastinate for hours before take-off! Travel Scrabble anyone?

Do you know where Charlie Sheen's "Winning!" actually came from? Mr. Sheen has a secret stash of blank tiles that he sneak-uses when he plays Scrabble. He doesn't do it in airports, though. Scrabble Police are lurking, ya know.

Isn't it always the same.

Ah yes that's true!

If I knew there was a Travel Scrabble, I'd forgotten. Sounds like a good time!

elainemcnulty said...

So true. Not so much a work of micro-fiction as a work of micro-fact!

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

Oh, gosh. Isn't that the truth? "Hurry up and wait" is the mantra of the airlines. What really stinks is when they board everyone and then go nowhere for half an hour!

Yeah, that's why I bring reading material! Good one!

Oh so true! Unfortunately, the last time I flew my daughter was way to young to be entertained by Scrabble. ~ Calico Contemplations

Another crack on the airlines-I would say it's well deserved!

Ellie said...

Ah, yes. I know that feeling well. Travel suduko anyone?

That's so true! Rush to get there, than wait. Hurry up and wait, they say.

I always traveled with two paperbacks, after I finished reading one and was still circling Newark for another hour. Thank goodness I don't fly anymore. Your mf certainly struck a chord!
