OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m flying south this week to meet my family for the holidays and while I’m excited to see them, I am not excited to be flying. Airport security lines always freak me out a little. Did I remember to take of my belt? Do my shoes go on the conveyor belt or in the plastic bin? Will my jewelry set off the metal detectors? Will my insulin pump? Will my continuous glucose monitor sensor be noticed if I get a pat-down? And, of course, am I moving fast enough so the people behind me don’t get annoyed? Continue reading
