Toothpaste and knives

Hey guys, I’m finally back in the US now. Sore throat. Sleepy. Must read much Turgenev for class tomorrow.

A funny thing happened to my child at the airport (he flies alone): at security, his toothpaste was taken away because no liquids are allowed on planes. So now he has stinky breath. Furthermore, as I cleaned out his backpack this morning so he could use it for school, I found in one of the pockets a knife he uses when he fishes. He’s 9, so of course he had no idea what he was doing. Still, people: my kid unwittingly had a knife on a plane.

How the fuck did it make it through security?

  1. yo lady,

    glad you’re back. i can’t believe they took my neutrogena anti-aging SPF 15 cream and let Ang keep his knife. That is hilarious and disturbing.

    Miss you! Have fun with the heavy reading.

  2. I just like the visual image of Ang fishing. Especially with a knife! I know this isn’t how he uses it, but it’s fun to imagine him reaching into the water to spear the fish on his knife.

  3. They recalibrated their x-ray machines to detect toothpaste instead of knives because knives are, like, sooo 2001.

    Glad you made it back safe and happy!


  4. They let him have a knife but took away his toothpaste?

    That’s nuts.
