At the airport, the theme continues. Once through security and its accompanying annoyances, I arrive at the gate to discover itís standing room only, and everyone is busy either looking disgruntled or complaining into their cellphones. Outside, the snow drifts down picturesquely. That prettiness outside was the cause of that ugliness inside, planes being delayed or cancelled. The flight before mine is cancelled, leading to a stampede to the customer service desk, where a lone employee is mobbed. Mine is delayed by nearly four hours, and when I finally get home at 3 am, I never want to leave again.
