I’m going on a flight this week to see my baby niece, and I am super looking forward to it. Not just because my niece is 6 months old and thus fully ripe for cheek-kissing and tum-nomming, but also because a flight means TIME BY MYSELF. Here’s what I’m bringing with me for this lovely, lovely time:
Dove Milk Chocolate Almond Promises. Uh muh guh, these are so yum. They have little tiny bits of almond in them instead of big huge chunks, so not only is the almond more evenly distributed throughout the chocolate, it’s like having someone else chew it for you!
I’m also bringing apples and pecans, because OMG with the “Please Do Not Feed the Passengers” thing airlines are doing. Also: dental floss.
People magazine. Oh yes. Several issues.
Water bottle. If you bring it empty through security, you can fill it from a drinking fountain on the other side and not have to buy bottled water at the crazy airport prices.
The Used World, by Haven Kimmel. I am DYING to read this, but making myself wait for take-off.
Sudoku puzzles. And extra pencils. I’m tempted to buy this edition instead of the regular-bound one I have, because this one is spiral-bound so I wouldn’t have to keep the book open myself. Heh-LO, I am on VACATION, I don’t want to have to EXERT MY THUMBS.
Hand-held Tetris. And extra batteries. My fellow passengers will be happy to know the sound can be muted.
My fellow passengers will be even happier to know I’m bringing Dramamine.
