Paging Sir Real, Your Flight Is Boarding

I’m on my way to Interesting Andean Country for a few weeks of business, and the connection through Atlanta-Hartsfield has been a mixture of the banal/expected and the strange/amusing.

Banal/expected: I deliberately scheduled a 4-hour connection, not 2-hour, because I know how this airport is. I was right, would’ve missed the one and only flight out of here today.

Strange/amusing #1: There’s a pianist playing in the food court of the intl concourse, and I think he’s a little off…first I noticed that he was playing Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’ (this is ground control to Major Tom), and then it was Boomtown Rat’s ‘I Don’t Like Mondays.’ I should probably move along to my gate before it gets ugly.

Strange/amusing #2: The lady sitting next to me on the plane to Atlanta kept looking very intently at various people around the plane from her aisle-seat vantage…and would note on the back of an envelope their seat numbers under a heading of ‘People After Me,’ no joke, I wasn’t worried since my seat wasn’t listed.
