Did they get complimentary champagne on the flight?

Here's a marriage proposal story I enjoyed reading:

Airport security changes Canadian man's plan for wedding proposal

Minh Le, this story is dedicated to you.

What, couldn't the X-ray penetrate the small box in the toe of the sock? Methinks if satellite can see the writing on a DIME from SPACE that they could have figured this one out, or been quieter about it.

I'm sorry - it's a charming story in a way, but my first reaction would be tremendous pique.

On the other hand: airport screening? Way more memorable for the story for the grandkids than random beach...

TadMack: I hate to fly because of all the inconsistencies in security and the general treatment of passengers who are not sitting in first class. When I read this story, I thought, "The airlines tried to ruin this person's fun, and they were foiled. Nyah, nyah."

John & Kelley said...

Yep, they were foiled! And now the whole world knows this couple's engagement story! How's that for 15 minutes (seconds?) of fame?
