Gail’s In Flight Guilty Pleasures

I fly a whole lot, and frankly, it is what it is. I neither love it nor hate it, at this point, Gentle Reader, it’s just something I have to do at lot. But I do have coping mechanisms. One of the things I do is allow myself to be spoiled a little as I travel to events. For example, I often spoil myself with a manicure beforehand.

Invader Zim Nail Art

In flight, I also spoil myself.

1. I’m allowed to read fashion magazines and read fiction or fantasy.
2. I get to eat a burrito and those little in flight pretzels.
3. I used to order ginger ale but since I kept getting sick when I traveled I try not to eat much sugar anymore, so it’s now mineral water or a mango smoothie.

What about you, do you spoil yourself when in flight?

    Wear cute and comfy clothes, take a high dose of antioxidants in a sad attempt to offset radiation and germs cavorting around the airports, drink green tea, and catch up on any reading, guilty or otherwise 🙂
