Yesterday while clearing security at Seattle Airport before my Lufthansa flight, I had a bit of an interesting run in with the TSA.
The priority security line wasn’t very long, though it seemed to take forever for the few people in front of me to get their stuff on the belt. As I slid my belongings onto the belt, the TSA agent singled me out and said “hey bro, you got all your liquids out?” Not sure if I looked like an especially inexperienced traveler or what, but I said “yep.”
He then continued with “what about powders? Have any powders, because they look the same in the x-ray as liquids?”
Now I was very tempted to respond “nope, no powders other than my kilo bag of cocaine,” but my better judgment got the best of me, and I just said “nope, no powders.”
He then continued “what about, like, protein powder?” I’m as built as Sheldon Cooper, what do you think?
