It’s been just a few days since the Boston Marathon bombings and there is definitely heightened security at the Burlington VT airport.  When I went to check in for my flight to Denver, I did not have my Passport and my photo driver’s license had expired.  My new driver’s license does not have a photo.  This turned into a problem, as did the fact that I only wanted to check one bag.  After having me take off my sweatshirt and patting me down, it was decided that I would have to check my carry-on bag too, which had my computer in it.

When I got my bag back, the wireless mouse was crushed.  I bought another one during my very long air traffic delay in Washington DC only to find out that a wireless mouse is no longer considered safe on United Airlines.  In the meantime, my husband has overnighted my Passport, hoping that I will have an easier time flying back to Burlington, should I ever get to Denver.

I know this is no 911 but it’s starting to feel like it.  I hate feeling uneasy about being in crowds of people I don’t know, and that other people need to be suspicious of me.


A Note: Cheryl wrote this post on Wednesday, April 17, just barely 48 hours after the Boston Marathon bombings. For various reasons (all of them mine) it wasn’t “published” until today.
