This week's BTT question:
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….
I rarely go anywhere without a book, so it's most likely that I'd have a book in the car. But if I didn't I'd buy one at the airport, or at least a magazine or newspaper, maybe a book of codewords or something.
I'd want to read something but I probably wouldn't be able to concentrate on anything as I'd be so nervous about catching the plane on time, worrying about the emergency and goodness knows what else ...
