We arrived at Pearson International Airport in Toronto around 11:00am on Friday. I was lucky enough to get randomly selected in the security line. The security officer (in a “you’re a winner” voice) said… “YOU have two options.” Behind door number 1 – the full body scanner that bares it all to the officer. There’s no hiding things here folks. Behind door number 2 – getting felt up by a random stranger.
I selected door 1 – I’ve always wanted to bare it all without actually taking my clothes off – awesome!
The U.S. customs line was amazingly fast (for once). I walk up to the kiosk, hand the customs officer my passport and the conversations begins…
- Officer (with a stern face): So, tell me about yourself.
I thought…this is strange, usually they just ask questions…ah! lightbulb moment and inside giggle
- Me (with a big grin): Well, I’m married, I have two kids and a cat named Kingston, I enjoy longs walks on the beach and I really like 80s music…what else would you like to know?
- Officer (with a slight grin): Umm…I was thinking more like – what were you doing in Canada?
Ha! Take that customs officer! I made you (somewhat) smile! Mission accomplished!
