I'm shocked, SHOCKED I tell you.

Why am I shocked? Well, because we flew in and out of two of the busiest airports in the country on two of the busiest days of the year and not ONCE were we assaulted, accosted, affronted or otherwise annoyed. Nobody told us to open our bags to see if “that little bottle” was capable of holding more than three ounces. No extra swipes at my under-wire. No long lines to get through security. It was as if the TSA was told by the powers to make sure that the lines kept moving and that the crowds didn’t get backed up.

Hey, wait a minute. If that’s the case, then that means that all those annoying security procedures that usually make us so miserable -- you know, the ones where they tell you to open you luggage, pull out the toiletry bag and dump it all out on the table so they can examine every liquid and then they take your hard salt crystal deodorant as a punitive measure because you made no effort to follow any of the rules and put your liquids in a clear ziploc bag (yes, this actually happened in Buffalo) -- you know, those security procedures that can add an hour to your trip, are really worth nothing but the show they provide.

It’s all for show.

Whoodda’ thunk it.
