ON THE BACK BURNER

May 28

I spent the night, literally, in the SeaTac airport. My plane from Denver landed at 1 am, and my transport doesn't come until noon. I found a spot pretty visible, near the bathroom , made myself as comfortable as I could, and actually slept . Being small helps because I could stretch out on a series of chairs. This airport, I had read was very tolerant to homeless and I saw evidence of that. Besides me and the homeless, a lot of airlines must get an early start because people and suitcases were pretty numerous. Too bad, everything was closed,but as soon as Starbuck's opened, I was there. About 6 am. the airport exploded and people, dogs,suitcases, employees coming for their shift brought this place alive. Maybe next time I catch a early flight, I'll skip the motel and just spend a second night at the airport. It wasn't so bad an experience and I could save $89.00.
