This is so on target it is scary. I do everything on the list other than number 8 and, just like the author, am perplexed when my wonderful wife and daughter do not immediately do them as well.
I do one other thing that is not on the list:
4.5. As you walk briskly past the long lines of unhappy people at the check-in desks with your pre-printed boarding pass in hand, marvel that (a) anyone would get their boarding pass at the airport and (b) anyone would actually check bags.
