What is it about air travel that makes us think we need to prepare like pioneers crossing the plains? I think we can all agree that people who bring full-size bedroom pillows on airlines are garbage. But take a gander at Mashable’s list of 13 Ridiculous Travel Accessories and ask yourself, is this the end of civilization.
What is flying? It’s sitting, right? I’m willing to wager that the people who bring the most extra shit just to fly on an airplane are the people who do the most amount of accessory-less sitting in their own homes.
The more things you bring TO SIT IN THE AIR, the more you’re apt to leave on board. Thus, I wear yoga pants and easily-removable Toms, I read from a Kindle, I listen to my iPhone, I have a bag of nuts (by a bag of nuts I mean 8 packs of candy) and a water, wallet, make-up, toiletries, and I keep a little thing of face mist. I do not bring an inflatable foot rest or my own butt washer.
