That is probably not what she meant, though who knows?

Women are masters at negotiating the "consideration" involved in a sexual transaction.

This made me think of an Onion Radio Network podcast from last week:

I'm all man but would feel much better about world peace if women negotiated all of those decisions. North and South Korea today is all about two men posturing about a dare.

Under the Nikāḥ al-Mut‘ah rule marriages of One Hour duration are permissible.

Kind of like the businessman's lunch hour rental at the motel.

True. If women were in charge of negotiations, talks would continue until they caused each other to have eating disorders:

(courtesy of Seinfeld):

Quote:
ELAINE: Why do they call it a wedgie?
GEORGE: Because the underwear is pulled up from the back and … it wedges in..
JERRY: They also have an atomic wedgie. Now the goal there is to actually get the waistband on top of the head. Very rare.
ELAINE: Boys are sick.
JERRY: Well what do girls do ?
ELAINE: We just tease someone ’til they develop an eating disorder.

I find it really annoying that airports have crappy internet pages.

My paranoia and agoraphobia are starting to surface.

What should I wear/buy?

What should I pack?

I did locate the suitcase.

I know I'm going to feel like crap after a day noise/light/sound/people/travel food/...

Can only hope I don't have a migraine.

Might want to try Chicos www.chicos.com. Not cheap, but pretty, comfortable and flattering clothes. They also have wonderful accessories that can make a simple outfit look really snazzy. A lot of their stuff is great for traveling. I'm sure they have lots on sales now. Two stores in Dayton. Their store locator has lots more in Ohio that may be more convenient for you.

Dayton, OH
The Oakwood Centre
Store #: 348
2500 Far Hills Avenue

For travel day – wear nothing with metal (except metal zippers) – especially underwire bras and hair accessories. Shoes easy to put on and take off. Same with belt. No liquids in purse. You’ll have to take off jacket or sweater so blouse/shirt underneath will be seen.

Bring hand sanitizer, aspirin, a couple of food bars and a book. Buy water at the airport. If you can, a deli sandwich or some trail mix.

You won’t feel like crap and you will feel better if you drink water regularly during the day, even if you have to visit the bathroom frequently.

Are you going to check a suitcase or carry on?

Book: motion sickness on moving vehicle; do have window seats.

Food: will buy some at airport

Water: see above

Luggage: one small checked suitcase & one small carry one

Khan,

I am VERY prone to motion sickness in cars (can't read anything in a car) and on boats (have to wear a behind-the-ear-patch on a boat).

When I have flown (and I've flown a lot), thankfully, I have never had a motion sickness issue. I hope you are able to read in-flight, as it truly makes the time fly.

If it's a a longer flight (approx. 3 hrs+), they may show a movie on-board.

If you're the lucky type who can fall asleep anywhere, bring along a small pillow (these days I don't count on the airline to provide one) and catch a nap.

Nope. That's one reason I dislike flying. Less than 2 hours each leg.

Checked baggage allows you more clothing and stuff you can't carry on (skin creams and stuff). You can't lock it - don't pack anything valuable (electronics, jewelry)

Which airport? What time does flight leave? This is to check what options you have to buy food.
