Is packing a suitcase for the airport a grand metaphor for life’s journey?
However, what we all know for certain about packing for a flight is that it takes time, planning and readjustment after readjustment. Why isn’t my suitcase large enough? How can I fit these shoes in? Why do I pack that shirt because I never end up wearing it? The most stressful part of this activity, though, is abiding by the strict guidelines as determined by the TSA. In case you’ve forgotten, their attention to detail is measured not in pounds, but in ounces.
Maybe these restrictions on liquids and soaps is why there are so many CVS and Duane Reade stores in cities with the busiest airports? Guaranteed foot traffic after countless flights for tourists and visitors.
As demonstrated in the video below, packing a suitcase for the airport can be a fantastic, beast of a challenge.
Remember: Free mouthwash at the hotel!
