Leer and Groping in Wichita

Greetings from Wichita Airport.  Larry went to make a bathroom run and I was sitting alone at the gate clunking on the computer.  Suddenly, behind me I heard a distinct sucking sound.  No…it couldn’t be.  Then I heard the sound again…and again…and again.  Finally I mustered up the courage to take a peek over my shoulder.  On the floor directly behind me was a couple making out.  It’s quite the spectacle.  They are facing each other and the guy has his legs wrapped around girl and she has her legs draped over him.  Often their hands can’t be accounted for.  But it is the sounds that are really gross. 

Don’t get me wrong– I’m not against making out.  But I do believe there is a time and a place.  Call me frigid, but sitting on a dirty airport floor surrounded by weary business travellers doesn’t seem to be the proper locale. 

When Larry returned to the gate, I got to see his face as he turned the corner and saw what was behind me.  Classic!  Some of the other passengers at the gate have had some interesting facial expressions as well.  There is a toddler staring at them at the moment.  Larry and I have subsequently moved to fetch power for our laptops.  Unfortunately…we’re still in the sucking sound range.  Ugh, I just heard a moan too.

Well one thing is for certain– this is one of the more interesting airport gate experiences I have ever had.

    The fact that someone was making out in an unromantic setting is in itself a romantic testament to the level of love (lust?). You’re just jealous 😛

    On the other hand, the sounds I imagine based on this post are not sounds I have ever heard human beings make, so I am laughing too 🙂

    But an airport of all places is actually very romantic. Isn’t that the place the big kiss happens in all those stupid chickflicks????? 🙂

    As an update– this couple was also on our flight! I was in happy oblivious land until Larry pointed out we could still see them. They kept at it during the flight. They made out at least an hour at the gate and almost the entire two hour flight. That’s three hours.

    P.S. Larry said he saw a hickie on the top of her boob. I am not able to confirm that.

    @Clint – Aren’t those romantic airport kisses when people are departing each other or being reunited?

    I just can’t imagine making out for 3 hours. My jaw would be sore. I’m such a married fuddy duddy!

    Me & Carolyn made out for approximately 7 hours on 2/11/1992, IIRC.

    Usually it’s when people are departing, as person X has to stop person Y from making the mistake of accepting job Z in city W such that they will never see each other again. Somethin’ like that.

    Seven hours! Wow! My kudos to your and Carolyn’s stamina.
