You're back? Okay.
Well, one of my major objections to flying was that full body scanner! It was my concern for the security personnel who would be trying to eat lunch after a gander at Eva in the altogether! I mean, I just didn't want the responsibility of some poor sap starving to death because after above mentioned exposure, he or she could never eat again!
According to Reuter's, new scanners have been developed which no longer expose the passenger's actual image. The new machine "uses a generic body outline and highlights the area where any anomaly is detected, eliminating the actual image of the passenger."
So it will soon be possible to get through security without the TSA agents having been exposed to Eva in all her inglorious nakedness.
Whoops! I just looked up anomaly in the dictionary; I still may be in trouble! Webster's defines anomaly as "a deviation from the common type, rule, or form; irregularity; abnormality; . . . an unexpected, unusual or strange condition." A glance at me naked in the mirror tells me I'm all of the above!
I guess I'm not ready to get back up into the skies yet. But maybe I could just stop by the airport for a little pat down, you know, for practice!
