Trapped in an Airport

Two mechanical malfunctions left me grounded at the Denver International Airport for 11 hours last week. I was too tired to read the work-related stuff I had brought along, and knew from experience that I was beyond the point where drinking coffee was going to be beneficial. What to do? I whipped out my camera and documented the ensuing hours:

What struck me most was the largesse on display everywhere: a rainbow of Crocs, a notable astronaut presiding over the Jamba Juice, the astonishing amount of sugar available. Businessmen getting their shoes shined while talking on their Blackberries, throwing around phrases like “face time”. The overall submission to this neon otherworld, where we were all a captive audience.
