Listening to the Donnas and The Muffs on Pandora, while I wait for an alternate flight. Reno airport requires the pilot to nose dive onto the runway. “Cancelled” in bright red on the board because 24 mph winds. This is a first and been so lucky all this time. I thank Tongan ticket counter guy and tell him “I love you” in Samoan. That is how I found out he’s not. “You’re not wearing a ta ovala” we laff I get an upgrade. Passing thru security I often wear an airport outfit for ease and use a square scarf as a top that later doubles as cover up, blanket or pillow. This time while flying from Las Vegas Nevada to Long Beach California I was told to “take it off” sheehs! Okay. That’s it I’m getting the TSA pass. Finally homegirl recognizes my situation and comes to my aid. I have passed thru many a security and not asked to alter my outfit. I love hearing these words but situations may vary. It pays to be nice and compliant. Ziajian.
