I nearly missed my flight to Belfast on Saturday morning because I was deemed to be a security risk.
I was going home to visit my parents for the holiday weekend, but ended up getting a bit over zealous with my packing, partly because of Mrs Liam, but mostly it was my fault.
She always ends up taking up all of her case and the at least a quarter of mine, doesn't matter where we go or how many bags we take, she never has enough room.
So anyway, my bags got pulled by the security guy and the offending item was Rachel's hair straighteners, which I didn't know you had to take out of your hand luggage.
So after taking them out the security guy put them through again and the same bag got pulled again.”It's flagging up as a suspicious security risk” the guy said as my departure time was getting ever closer and I was starting to panic that I might actually miss the flight.
“There's nothing in there that shouldn't be there” I said, and before the words had barely got out of my mouth it dawned on me what it might be.
I had packed 2 blocks of blocks Cheshire cheese for my Dad, because he loves that stuff and it was wrapped in wax and then wrapped in a plastic bag to protect my clothes.
It looked exactly what 2 blocks of plastic explosives would look like in my bag through the xray machine, so they had to take it out and run it through again.
Third time lucky and disaster averted.
