Cora and I are back from our Adventures Down South!
Cora survived her first and second plane rides. She did fantastic and even slept through one of the landings.
I'm not ready to regale you with tales and recaps today, so I'll just leave you with two lists.
Things I Have Gotten Through Airport Security
Empty water bottles (disposable, stainless steel, whatever)
Sub sandwiches from various non-airport delis
A 4oz. container of applesauce
A sippy cup with water in it
A peanut butter and jelly sandwich
Nail clippers and a manicure set
A wind-up stuffed giraffe
A stroller that the TSA person had to fold for me because I was clutching a child
Things I Have Failed To Get Through Airport Security
Some type of wrench tool that was more than 7 inches long (yes, they measure it)
I have my husband to thank for the failure. He bought it for his dad as a Christmas gift a few years back, and for whatever reason it ended up in my backpack (we weren't checking bags). Yeah, I ended up leaving (being escorted out of??) the security area and going to the post office (most airports have one in them!) and mailing it to where we were going.
I've also been frisked (once) and had to dump water into a trash can. But not from a sippy cup.
If this post intrigued you, here is the TSA List of Prohibited Items.
