Most Intense Airport Pat Down!

Most Intense Airport Pat Down!

I was feeling great after a relaxing few days on the isle of Zanzibar in Tanzania.  Barely awake, I was almost sleepwalking through airport security on my way back to my hectic work schedule in mainland Africa.  My friend was ahead of me, in the same early morning, pre-coffee state.

By this point, I am practically a machine when it comes to airport security.  I dutifully hauled out my laptop and liquids.  When the female security guard motioned for me to do so I stepped forward, with my arms out and my legs spread.  Little did I know she was about to check God's Pocketbook through my thin leggings to make sure I wasn't smuggling any drugs.

What's God's Pocketbook, you ask?  It's a term I recently learned from a women's prison documentary.  Apparently it's prison slang for the wonderful cavity God gave women to help them smuggle things in prison.

I was now fully awake, pondering the legality of what had just happened when the look on my friend's face said that her pocketbook had also just been checked.
