So it seems I’m in good company

This morning’ news item that Shah Rukh Khan was detained yet again by the US Immigration authorities brought back memories of the time when I was frisked by the US Immigration authorities while taking an internal flight. In hind sight, it was ironic that I was frisked at Minneapolis  because that was the place where the original terrorists of the 9/11 World Trade Centre attacks actually trained for their pilot licences.

I was called out of the line and taken to the side where the big, burly guard gave me a proper, closer than normal frisking. The security guard was particularly intrigued by a gelatinous mass above my trousers and below my rib cage which is normally called “muffin top”. Not withstanding her own huge girth, the lady cop was  rather shocked when I told her that it was only my stomach and that it worried me more than it worried her.

So unlike Shah Rukh who had a two hour detention and that too twice over, I should be grateful that I had only a five minute interrogation and the fact that I was questioned at all just proves that I am in good company after all!!!!
