I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Happy birthday from the TSA

I'm treating myself to a long weekend in Chicago for my birthday. At least I think I am.

My building is undergoing some badly needed renovations in the hallway -- new paint, new carpet, new tile -- and I got covered in dust carrying my suitcase down the stairs this morning.

This triggered an alarm going through security, and I got the "please go into this small room for further screening" treatment. My luggage and I were both thoroughly searched and swabbed, and though I'm safely through security now, it was more than a little unnerving.

God only knows what's in that dust. I'm going to be very careful about breathing it.
