This week’s Booking Through Thursday question is:
Quick! It’s an emergency! You just got an urgent call about a family emergency and had to rush to the airport with barely time to grab your wallet and your passport. But now, you’re stuck at the airport with nothing to read. What do you do??
And, no, you did NOT have time to grab your bookbag, or the book next to your bed. You were . . . grocery shopping when you got the call and have nothing with you but your wallet and your passport (which you fortuitously brought with you in case they asked for ID in the ethnic food aisle). This is hypothetical, remember….
BE IRRITATED! How many of us have found ourselves somewhere with nothing to read and all you can think about is that great book sitting on your nightstand…there’s really few things as frustrating. It’s those situations that make me bring a book even if I’m 99% sure I won’t have time to read. You never know…
Unfortunately, most of the books at the airport are mainstream and I’ve most likely either read them or don’t want to read them. So in this case I’d probably buy a magazine. Or maybe I would buy a book of sodoku. I’m really only very good at the very easy crossword puzzles (Tuesday in the New York Times is about as hard as I get), so that’s out. Worst case scenario? I’d play Tetris on my cell phone or solitaire on my Palm. I’m the Tetris MASTER!
Is this where I have to eat my words that the Kindle is not that great of an invention? ‘Cause I probably would have had my Kindle with me (if I were in to that kinda thing…).
What would you do? If you’ve already answered this on your own blog, leave a comment and I’ll come see what you came up with… 😀
