Back when I was on a plane to somewhere, up to 6 days a week, I decided it would be fun—especially when upgraded to first class—and wearing my best Hart Schaffner Marx pinstripes and silk tie, to open my attache; pull out a coloring book and crayons and ... . 

Can you picture it?  One more thing I never did.Sigh.

I'm reminded of a line from Oscar Wilde in his final years, If I remember correctly it went something like,
"In is not the sins that I committed that I regret but the ones I didn't commit."

So... if you DID do that, what would be a "topper," the icing on the cake, so to speak?

Color book, crayons, and a Tootsie Pop!

Anybody else?

I was just thinking of the fun that could be had with a whoopee cushion on a flight especially if your fellow passenger was smelly. "Hey it wasn't me, you can sniff my behind and tell that I was innocent."
Lordy but I'm a depraved one these days.

I won't say where, but there is in (someone's) Engineering Records an initial design proposal for a certain semiconductor production tool in multi-color crayon, complete with stick figures (since everything after that was done in CAD, including a professional looking IDP for everyone above my immediate management, I doubt anyone has ever looked at it, but it's there).
