If you see the airport signs featuring the made-up word ‘recombobulation,’ the word might make so much sense that you might not notice!
If you’re like me, going through airport security can be a nerve-racking experience. That’s not because you’re trying to smuggle something dangerous through, but because every time I travel, some minor rule has changed — leave the jewelry on; put the shoes on the conveyor belt, not in a bin — and you feel like you’re failing a college exam.
When I get through the metal detector, it takes a moment to get myself (and my stuff) together again.
You might say that someone who has been so confused from such an experienced might be discombobulated.
Fortunately, most airports have a little area just past security that often includes a bench or two where one can sit down and put their shoes back on as well as place items back in their pockets.
Leave it to the General Mitchell International Airport just south of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to come up with the perfect name for such a place: The Recombobulation Area.
