I read a book by its cover. Am I proud of this? No. Is it a bit shallow?! … most likely. Do I love something aesthetically pleasing? Absolutely ..
Current sitch… I’m on a plane . I got to the airport 2.5 hours early . Not because I’m an anxious psycho.. . But because I wanted to hit up the TSA precheck spot and sign a sister up….5 minutes. A background check… A picture where I’m not allowed to smile, and $78 later.. my wish was granted …
I had allotted 49 minutes for this process, it took 5.. Then it was time for airport Security…
Agent- “Come on up, license & phone face down please … that’s a nice license picture , beautiful smile “
“Thanks! Did you see I’m an organ donor!”
Walking to the gate … I passed an airport bar responsibly .. kept walking .. guess what?!… *Que the harp Noises*… an even nicer airport bar with a plethora of seating right by my gate ..
3 mimosas , 5 new friends, 3 business cards and a bite of a terrible breakfast burrito later I was sitting there alone … Just Me & Dianne, the friendly lil bartender. $97 later and I hadn’t even left Cuse yet … That’s when u know you’re about to embark on a tiny holiday.
Over the loud speaker I heard them start the boarding for my flight … I thankfully made my way over to my gate with a strong ass Irish coffee my girl Dianne hooked me up with …. I waited for group 7.
Do you always just wonder who u might be sitting next to? I booked my self an aisle seat per usual . I hate bothering people when I have to tinkle .. but guess what . I waltz up to row 15 .. and here are two giant fellas squished next to each other in middle and window seat…
As I sat there extremely comfortably in the cushy aisle seat of row 15… I looked at the fella next to me and said … “Would you like to switch? I can sit in the middle “ I’m a selfless bastard I tell ya. But u know . This made both of these guys day. Mostly because I feel they were just uncomfortably cozy sitting so close to one another .. It must be a man law or something .
The little things right? This guy even offered to share a headphone with me to watch a Yellowstone marathon he was l thankful. I declined . You know why .. cuz I bought myself a book today. A book to read! As I stood in the lil airport store .. Staring at a sea of books .. this blush pink paperback with an upside bouquet of flowers on the cover was calling my name … was it the most aesthetically pleasing book on the shelves… I think so .. Did I read the back … yep. Intrigued me enough to drop a 20 spot .. & Guess what… I’ve read 33 pages . Then had to pee and bother my nice aisle seat neighbor …
But u know what. This pretty pink book is brilliant … it’s clever . It’s real & sort of a knee slapper at times … who would have thought. Pretty can be clever… Reading is fun…. When you have nothing else to do I suppose . But it makes me think… about everything else I could be potentially judging by it’s cover. I’m not specifically talking ugly fellas with great personalities .. . I’m talking life .. … things that I may not want to do or be apart of .. because I may think one way… and it may turn out to be something totally different …. Keeping an open mind is sort of important . It’s enlightening … Sort of makes me want to purchase a hideous book when I finish this one and see how it goes .
