TSA took my $75 hair cream. Yes, it was over the size limit, but if the gentleman would have just taken a minute to look at my split ends, he would have understood!

I recover, though, and play it cool. Oh that old cream? Psh. I have a dozen of ’em. *Frantically texts mom to please go purchase more hair cream and have it waiting for my arrival*

Things are on the up and up until I deplane my first flight. Water bottle? Check. Phone? Check. Laptop? Check. I prance off the plane and give my best international world traveler supermodel smile to the flight attendants and pilots. I get to the monitor to see where my next gate is when I realize my load is a bit light. *Frantically prances back onto plane to retrieve carry on*
