Humming Fantasia

While I was in the airport on Monday, a man passed me pushing his (daughter? son? I couldn’t see) in a stroller.  He was on a mission, obviously trying to get them to their gate with a great deal of focus.  Which was just like everyone else wandering around the concourse, except…he was humming that song from Fantasia.  You know the one.  The one where the brooms dance.

Ba-da-ba-dum-de-dum-de-doodoodoo-dum-de-dum….yeah, that’s it.

What a funny thing to be humming as you make your way through the airport!  And then, I thought of how motivational the song really is for walking.  It encourages a focused, quick-paced forward motion.  It made me wonder if we should pipe it in for the whole airport.  Can you imagine going through the security line, all bopping our way through the metal detector with the TSA agents waving their wands in time?  That would make security a lot more fun!
