When most people board a plane, they have a plan for how they will spend the time in the air. Teens wait in line with travel pillows around their necks, waiting to get into their seats so that they can snooze for a few hours. Business people carry on laptops, intending to finish up presentations. Some people have a book or magazine that they plan to read, and yet others have shows or movies to watch. Me? I stare at the seat in front of me.
In all honesty, I have a hard time reading or watching movies on a plane. I just cannot focus to the point where I am losing myself in the story. I am always fully aware that I am on a plane, and that the flight attendant may stop by at any moment with peanuts and ginger ale. I'm just too distracted. However, I do enjoy reading magazines because they don't require a lot of focus. You can flip through the glossy pages pretty quickly and pick and choose what appeals to you. But, I don't want to spend $5.00 on a 20 minute read! So instead, I stare at the seat in front of me.
