Shooting from the Hip, er Chair

Airports are a great place to 'people watch'. These three were waiting for a flight to Denver. Personally, I think this is an interesting vignette. The older woman relaxed, reading, and drinking coffee. A seasoned traveler. What you can't see here is the mink coat. The lady in red connected to her blackberry. Is she catching up on email or texting friends? The man in white appears to be deep in thought. At other times he appeared agitated. Was he upset because his flight was delayed or is his purpose for travel more ominous? Or is he PO'd because he's traveling with the lady in red and she won't turn off the damn blackberry.
What do you think?

Reminds me of this country song by Sammy Kershaw:

Oh yes, and the sequel song: You are the Love of My Life.

One of the fun things about flying is people-watching in the airports...thank goodness, 'cause you're often stuck there for a long time.

I think you should write three short stories - one for each of these folks...you've got things started quite well!
