For your safety

Fact:  I always carry pepper spray with me.

When we went to New York for a long Memorial Day weekend, I somehow forgot to remove it.  Officially you can put it in your checked baggage, but we didn’t check bags.

I didn’t realize that I even had it with me until we repacked for our flight out of Newark.  Oops.  I guess I could have just checked the bag, but everyone who’s ever flown into ATL knows that equates another hour of standing around and waiting, on top of the stupid $15 Delta fee.  Fuck that.

I smoothly and easily sailed through ATL’s airport security a contraband item, but I assume anything and everything is stupid in Atlanta and I was going to get caught here.  So there I was, freaking out in the security line and finally just threw it away.  Damn it.

Next time I’m “unknowingly” going to bring my 4(!) oz. container of lens solution.  Take that!
