Ok, one of the few advantages to being stuck in the airport for hours on end is that you get to People Watch....
We saw a bartender CARD AN 80 YEAR OLD MAN! We saw 2 middle aged brothers who had fallen asleep...on EACH OTHER. We saw a bunch of rowdy Bears' fans watching their team play the undefeated Packers....and then came the ultimate.
We were in Hudson News attempting to spend our last AIRLINE AMMENITY VOUCHER on 8 packs of gum and 2 packs of cough drops when the best sighting of the day walked in....
I walked over to Mads and quietly whispered... "I have 2 words for you...FORREST GUMP...now you figure out the rest."
He began to walk through the small store and within seconds, was rouring with laughter.
Standing in the middle of Hudson News, reading the latest publication about Donald Trump, was a man that puts me in the mood for shrimp-- Bubba gump shrimp, to be specific.
We had to figure out a creative way to snap his pic without him knowing.... as you can see, we did, but we were not satisfied. We were determined that you, our friends and family, should get to see what we saw, first hand....suitcase and all. The only thing missing was the box of chocolates!
So being stuck in the airport for several hours- $20.00 (from airline vouchers)
...a bag full of gum and cough drops--$9.18
and seeing Forrest Gump's twin in the middle of Midway airport- PRICELESS.
