      8 Things I'm Thankful For When Traveling
      9 --------------------------------------
     10 
     11 - Online check-in and ticketing
     12 
     13 - Random acts of kindness to help calm a screaming toddler
     14 
     15 - Regarding above: The Netflix series Llama Llama
     16 
     17 - Also regarding above: The children's series Paw Patrol
     18 
     19 - Car rentals with CarPlay support, and that Apple finally got it's
     20   crap together re: Maps
     21 
     22 - Staying with family rather than at a hotel
     23 
     24 - A toddler sleeping mid-flight
     25 
     26 - Getting to show my family new places or, as the case may be, places
     27   that are old to me but new to them
     28 
     29 - The folks I'll get to see at the destination
     30 
     31 - People watching on the way
     32 
     33 Things I Would Prefer Be Different When Traveling
     34 -------------------------------------------------
     35 
     36 - Lackadaisical bag-check attendants, who one might think are duty bound
     37   to not care about people's boarding times, etc.
     38 
     39 - The feeling of panic between when your toddler starts screaming like a
     40   banshee and when the aforementioned acts of kindness are perpetrated
     41   by various other passengers/Good Samaritans
     42 
     43 - The mild sense dehumanization that accompanies any trip through the
     44   TSA line, but especially the ones with long waits and grumpy uniforms
     45 
     46 - Turbulence
     47 
     48 - That heartless master, the airplane seatbelt light
     49 
     50 - $4 cans of soda
     51 
     52 - However much a well drink costs mid-flight (I won't pay it unless the
     53   Mrs. tells me that I'm being insufferable and I should have a drink
     54   for her sake)
     55 
     56 - My own crankiness and overall unpleasantness toward others, especially
     57   my wife
