Last year I got stuck in the Miami airport with our photo crew. After eight hours of boredom, we made a list of the top 25 things to do when you’re stranded at an airport. Needless to say, a few cocktails definitely helped our creative ideation.

Without further ado, here’s the list (in no particular order):

  • Get drunk 
  • Set up an iPod and speakers and have a dance party
  • Host a group nap
  • Try to create a costume out of the contents of your suitcase/carry-on
  • Stand in Duty Free and pretend to be a perfume girl/guy
  • See how many phone numbers you can collect
  • Play charades
  • Wear large sunglasses and introduce yourself to people as a “celebrity”
  • Host a talent competition at your gate
  • Talk yourself into an Admirals Lounges
  • Set up a kissing booth and raise money for charity
  • Convince a stranger to switch boarding passes with you
  • Coordinate a flash mob
  • Hold a casting for your new best friend
  • Pretend to read palms
  • Ask a random stranger to ballroom dance in the hallway
  • Practice joining the mile-high club in the airport bathroom
  • Talk a bartender into allowing you to guest-bartend
  • Build a fort with coats and scarves
  • Set up a bowling alley with empty soda cans
  • Make up a fake identity and see how many people you can convince
  • Teach a step class at the gate using the chairs
  • Slip-and-slide down the airport hallway using neck pillows
  • Start a wave and try to get it to go down the entire length of the terminal
  • Learn how to say f**k you in 20 different languages
