Ish and I are at the Phoenix airport now, with lots and lots of other people who, from the looks of it, don't travel that often.
There is one man in particular who is currently grossing me out so much that I had to jump online here to tell you about him. Yes, THAT gross.
[Also, our pilots haven't arrived yet and we're supposed to start boarding in 8 minutes and I didn't bring my Ativan.]
But this man. He is middle aged and balding and wearing a lot of denim. And I looked up, innocently enough, and there he was, sitting at the gate, FLOSSING HIS TEETH.
The thing is, I appreciate people for whom dental hygiene is important, and generally associate good clean mouths with good clean people. But who flosses at an airport gate? Surrounded by about a MILLION people and small children?
Sadly, since I began this entry, he has entered new depths of gross-ossity. He put away the floss (I didn't happen to see where he put it, eww), and then moved into picking his teeth with his fingernails. Then he started chewing/picking teeth/blowing through a straw. He then put that away and picked up a book, and started absent-mindedly picking his nose.
Let us hope he stops short of clipping his toenails.
