Airport people watching games
When these conditions are not met, I make up people-watching games. "I Spy" is so last millennium. Here are two that worked for me at JFK last week, as I munched on ciabatta bread that had the texture of a rubber doorstop.
You can play with a friend (whoever spots the 'do first gets the points), or against yourself in twenty minute intervals. Points are allotted as follows:
Didn't brush their hair today and probably not yesterday either - 1 point
Creepy/bad highlights - 1 point
Unnatural colors like purple or green - 2 points
Mullet - 10 points
Big as Texas - 5 points
and the ultimate: Scrunchie - 20 points
Watch for foreign flight attendants with the scrunchies. Who told them that was okay?
2. Baby Mamma Drama
Another point game:
Stroller - 2 points
Stuffed animal - 2 points
Stroller with pregnant mom - 5 points
Twins - 5 points
Child strapped/harnessed to adult - 5 points
Crying child - 10 points
Child in bar - 10 points
Child on leash - 20 points
But don't let people know you're looking at their children, they'll think you're creepy.
