Airport Sightings by Pat Simmons

I haven't flown since New Year's Day. I can't say I miss the hassle of it, but I do miss visiting my daughter a couple of times during the year. While on Twitter, I stumbled across a tweet that captured some of the most unusual, funny and bizarre things seen at an airport.

My most exciting signing was cheerleaders for the Cleveland Browns. Of course, after I posed with them for photos, other male passengers decided they wanted in on the fun. Copy cats. Anyway, since pictures tell the stories, here are some funny ones.

Let's take vote. Which one is your favorite?

1. With these adorable faces, how could you put them in timeout?

2. So how late is my flight?

3. Just when you think you've seen everything. Nah.

4. The things a dad will do for some shut eye. The funny part will be when he arrives at his destinations and will have no idea why everyone is staring. LOL
5. A must have when your flight is on time, but your luggage is delayed.
6. As an author, this would be great advertising, but then again, I can see someone taking my luggage to go sell my books.

7. So that's how you travel with children.

8. It's not always a good thing to have folks waiting at the airport to give you a lift. Can we say Uber?


I hope this post made you smile. Laughter is the best medicine.

Now some the Big news...after nine months, I'm about to deliver my new release. HERE FOR YOU in 7 Days at 12:01 am.

  1. I liked the one with the girls putting stickers on their dad.

  2. I loved the sticker one. LOL I wish I could have been there when he woke up.
