Sharpie Luggage

2 hours to wait in an airport + 1 silver sharpie marker + 1 cheap carry on bag = TADA!  Art on Wheels

Would have done more but the sharpie was already mostly used up and ran out of ink.  Will pack a fresh one for next time.

As it was, I so focused on what I was doing that I nearly missed the boarding call for my plane.

While I worked (played), the public address system intoned repeatedly:

"Attention airline passengers.  Increased security measures require that all passengers maintain close personal contact with their items at all times.  Unattended items will be promptly removed by law enforcement personnel.  Additionally, report all suspicious items or activities immediately to airport personnel.  Your safety is our priority."

Close personal contact with my items?  Hmmm.  

Though I certainly was attentive to my carry-on bag, did this qualify as a suspicious activity?  

Got some funny looks as I sat on the floor scribbling on my bag, but no one reported me.
