Things I’ll Miss About Life: Part 9 of blank (Meeting somebody at an airport)

I know most of you out there probably aren’t big fans of airports.  Think of all the bad things about airports:  traffic while dropping someone off at their terminal, the fake cops telling you you can’t wait at the white curb for more than ten seconds, the overpriced food, the excessive fees for the most basic things, the layovers…the list goes on and on.  One of the worst feelings in the world can be dropping somebody off at the airport, especially if it’s someone you really care about.  Most of the time, however, it’s only a temporary goodbye.   But this blog is not about and will never be about the bad things in life.  This is all about the good things.

One of my favorite things to do is people-watch at airports.  I love watching people wait for loved ones but most of all, I love when they finally see the people they’re waiting for come out of the terminal and they hug and kiss and do whatever.  It’s definitely a warm fuzzies kind of feeling.   I love the movie Love, Actually, and with that being said, I obviously love the last scene of the movie.

Not only is people watching fun, but actually being the person coming off the plane knowing you’ll be greeted by familiar faces is such an awesome feeling.  Knowing somebody will be at the airport to pick you up means a lot.    Next time you’re coming off an airplane, and you’re walking up to the person/people waiting for you, try not to smile while walking towards them.  It’s next to impossible…at least it is for me anyway.
