Tomorrow I’m flying to France. (To clarify for the benefit of our many pedantic readers, technically I’m not going to be the one doing the flying, I’ll be sitting on an aircraft (probably an Airbus A320) which will be the one doing the flying. I have a few talents but the ability to soar through the air (unless thrown from a cliff) is not one of them).
Anyway, pedantry aside, I’ll be flying to France from Edinburgh via Bristol and then back again on Monday. This means going through four sets of airport security in as many days. Therefore I’m organising a minor security sweepstake. A massive prize* will be awarded to anyone who guesses how many times I will be stopped by security as a result of carrying a tonne of the usual diabetes paraphernalia.
It really does ;
