Law Student Missed Her Flight Thanks to TSA and the Government Shutdown, So She Danced.

Atlanta-based law student Katie Gould missed her flight and had four hours to kill until she could get another one, thanks to long TSA lines as a result of employees calling out sick during the government shutdown.

So she did what anyone would do. She danced. She danced on the airport train. She danced in the terminal. She danced while having a drink. You can’t get frustrated with travel — with the airlines, with the TSA, with yourself — when you’re dancing.

Gould was traveling with her cat named Bowie, which was featured in the video. She calls it Bosef, Boba, Bo, and “precious baby angel boy.” She’s all of us.
