Running into Meg Whitman at the airport in Vegas - What are the odds?

I hurried my way to the airport to catch my flight on Southwest Airlines this evening...  I stepped out of the taxi with about 2 hours to wait before my flight and the skycap informed me that my flight would be delayed by up to an hour...  Know what that means?  Yup...  3 hours to wait.  So I was not in any hurry.

Las Vegas Airport

When I am at the airport, I enjoy watching everyone run by...  Going somewhere, coming from somewhere and always seem to be in a hurry...  But when you have 3 hours, you really are NOT in a hurry...

As I was heading through the security checkpoint, I noticed someone that looked familiar...  Yup, it was Meg Whitman.  For those of you NOT from California, she was the CEO of E-Bay and recently ran for the Governors job in California against Jerry Brown.  She subsequently lost...   I asked her if she was Meg, and she said yes with a pleasant smile.  I asked her for a picture, and she was very polite and I think kind of enjoyed the celebrity feeling that was befalling her.  Now whether you like her or not, it is still cool to have met her!

Meg Whitman

After I took the picture, we all talked about it in line.  She wore sneakers like we do.  She waited in line like we do. She talks on the phone in line like we do.  She took pictures with random people like we do.  She has about 7 people she travels with just like we do...  Well, I don't have 7...  I actually have 9.  :)

Airport - Las Vegas

Sitting waiting...  Staring at these wonderful contraptions...  Finally we were ready to board, and NO, I didn't loose any money this trip!  OR, win any...

So I am finally home, and ready for some long needed sleep...  So I can be up and ready to get at 'em tomorrow!
