Travel is glorious. Somehow, I think a bonafide traveller can also aspire to find adventure and joy in the sometimes dreary-seeming tunnels of transition also known as airport security zones.
I double dare you to keep your smile on through the line, the shifting of belongings, the re-shoe-ing, and so on. Security agents are actually helping you travel (though it may not seem like that). Plus, despite the cumbersome demands, it’s a worthwhile thing to pursue airport security. Hopefully, it can be done with increasing smoothness and healthiness in the years ahead too.
In the meantime, you should know that you may not be able to take a battery-depleted cel phone onto an airplane. Read about it here.
