Getting Ready for My Trip
I leave for Washington State bright and early Saturday morning to visit my family. Only 2 more days of work! I am getting excited. I really don't like to fly but the alternatives are too time consuming. I like to bring my own food since the prices at the airport are outrageous. Too bad liquids aren't allowed. Last time I got caught by security with a contraband single serving applesauce! It didn't occur to me that it was a liquid or gel. They said I had to throw it away or eat it there. I sat right there and ate it. There was no way I was going to throw it away, then take a couple of steps and pay $3 for something else to eat.
I happen to have a ding dong in my possession right now but I don't think I will try to bring it to the airport. I don't know how to classify creamy filling. The same thing goes for my string cheese. I read that people have been caught smuggling things in cheese. I had better stick to something safe like a baggie of cereal and an apple in its original form.
