So, we came back from our latest trip and came to find our hard drive that had the photos for the Seychelles Saga (and nearly every other trip we’ve taken in the past 3 years) has a problem. We’re trying to get the data off, but in the meantime, I’ll offer some humor.
When going through security at Washington-Dulles for our most recent trip, I said to heck with opting out, and decided I’d go through the backscatter scanner.
I also decided that if I was going to do this, I’d try having a little fun with it. The interaction went something like this:
Me: So this is where I throw up my hands and shout, right?
TSA Agent <laughing>: Well that’s a first!
So this got me thinking, what more fun can we have?
– Sing a verse of YMCA — or skip right to the A once in the position
– “Fins to the Left! Fins to the Right!”
– If the TSA agent looks like they don’t have a sense of humor, perhaps saying in a robotic voice: “I am assuming the position.”
– Throw your hands up like you just don’t care
Would love to see comments on fun experiences with TSA agents.
