Dont you feel safer now?

Ok funny story. I was in one of my best friends wedding last weekend. We went to High School together in North Dakota. (Congrats Matt)
Anyway, the wedding was in Washington state and they had to fly me out. So for my first fathers day miss Ella gave me this whole really cool shampoo/calone/body wash gift pack. I really need all that. So I decided that sense it was just a weekend trip I could just pack it all in my back packing bag. Didnt need to check anything in.
So I get to that area where you have to put all that stuff in the machine so they can make sure that you dont have any weapons and thought......CRAP my razor is in there. I send it on through anyway and they say they have to search my bags. I figured as much.
SO he is going though all my stuff, no big deal until he gets to the body wash and shaving cream. Takes them out and says he has to either throw them away or i can have them sent home. I look at him like he was crazy. So then I pick up my razor and say I can keep this with five blades but I cant keep shampoo or shaving cream. "Correct" in a very stern voice. Well I was not satisfied with that. So i continue to ask.....
"Sir, how on earth does that make any sense? I can keep a razor that actually would cut or so some damage but I cant keep the stuff to shave with or my shampoo. How does that make ANY sense?" His only response was...."Son, I dont make the rules but I make you obey them."
Ok fair enough.
He did say for 14 dollars I could have it sent home. Well for 14 dollars i can buy several shampoos and shaving cream.
So I felt very safe.....i had no shampoo, but if anyone attacked me, i had my razors to fight back with.

that poo....dangerous stuff.

Just wait until you fly WITH the baby. They pretty much make you put EVERYTHING, baby seat, stroller, etc...almost the child itself, through the machine. I never realized a stroller could fit through there.

They all have the sunniest dispositions. :)
