In the airport, we are all accustomed to going through the security cube, lift our arms, wait for the machine to scan us, then move out and wait for the approval before we can proceed out and collect our carry-on bags.
This time at the security check, I was asked to wait and was told that I would get a patdown.. But where? They wanted to check my hair and plait more closely. The security lady was holding my plait and kind of pulling it a little and expressed a surprise saying how thick my plait was. She could not believe I had such long and thick hair. Needless to say, I was flattered! :-)
