I am not vain enough to assume people actually enjoy reading all my random posts about my life. But for the few that aren't bored by my posts and really do read them... here is the latest in a comical series of airport security events ;)
I'm not sure why, but for some unknown reason I always seem to be the person that gets pulled aside at airports and frisked while other security guards run those electronic scanners over me. My carry on luggage is then opened and everything gone through in front of the lines of other passengers who cast me looks of amusement, pity and relief that it is me not them being given an overhaul. So I decided, enough is enough!
This trip I learned from my past! I'm not going to wear any underwear with metal decorations (learned that from the airport security in Las Vegas..) And for heaven's sake, if you are looking for a purple stuffed animal for a present, DON'T ask the sales people if they have purple stuffies for sale. I guess from the shocked, horrified and embarrassed looks, that word means something different in the States compared to Canada!! hahahahaha
Back to my airport advice:
I won't look guilty when they ask me if I'm carrying drugs or weapons. The last time they did this I had to endure 3 guards quickly opening up my carry on while another stood guard over me. Fine, I was guilty of them finding 7 packs of Hubba Bubba bubblegum. They all looked at me weird and I blurted out that it was my stress relief gum that I chew instead of chilling out with drugs. I guess middle aged women like me aren't supposed to chew this bubblegum ;) But I digress....
Fortunately for me, this last airport flight I only got frisked and the security scanners run along my body and the bottoms of my high heels. I decided ahead of time that I would arrange all my bras and other underwear items on top of everything else so if the guards go through my luggage, they would get totally embarrassed and quickly close my suitcase up and let me through.
Unfortunately for my hubby, my plan backfired because he accidentally grabbed my carry on wheely luggage. I stood in the distance, shaking with silent laughter while watching the stern Germany security guards pull him aside and open up the luggage! HAHAHAHA... you should have seen the looks they gave my man... it was sooooo funny!!! I told him he should have said that they were items for his night job :)
For some reason, he wasn't as amused as me until he saw me in the distance, (yes, I was pretending I didn't know him), and I had a huge smile on my face and tears of laughter rolling down my face! Then I got the usual rolling of his eyes as he tried not to encourage my laughter and as usual, he shook his head at me and stated that life is never boring with me. I gave my usual reply that hey, he was the older guy who decided to marry someone younger than him so he could 'train' me. Not my fault if things backfired and I ended up so prone to events of embarrassment :) I mean, come on now, I was 16 years old when we met, he was my first and only boyfriend! I'm innocent, except for the part that I just never did the whole growing up into a mature adult thing :)
