Jim Hightower's deodorant, but he didn't get mine!
While I've perfected my pre-flight purse purge to rid myself of handheld tools, I seem to have forgotten just how many liquids lurk in the depths.
When they asked me about liquids, my mind immediately leapt to the gallon sized bag of rapidly melting ice that was keeping my sandwich cold. Ice...various first grade science lessons whipped through my mind. "Definitely a solid" I thought, as I confidently offered my "Nope!" No liquids here. At least not for another 15 minutes or so.
I watched other passengers grapple with ziplocks and surrender toiletries, secure and happy in my delusion that I was more or less in compliance with the regulations. Apparently I was convincing enough that not even *I* suspected that I also harbored such contraband as a tube of lip gloss, a bottle of hand sanitizer, a bottle of spray sunscreen, a packet of matches, and a bottle of spray deodorant.
Now where's that knife? I brought an avocado to eat on the plane.
