It's been awhile since I was here last, and I hope I won't be back here again for some time.
I wanted to sing the national anthem in the security line, and did a bit, but nobody else started singing with me, including Dina. I think I need to print out flyers with the words and distribute them next time in line. (Because honestly, I forget too. I mix up the lyrics to "America"... My country 'tis of Thee, Sweet Land of Liberty... Of thee I sing...)
Of course, if I passed out lyrics I'd have to censor certain words so I wasn't responsible for a mass singing of....
... the bombs bursting in air....
I don't think the TSA would be amused with that. Could they arrest me for showing patriotism, though, even appropriately censored?
Oh say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
Free? Hah. Brave? Hah. We live in fear.
I'm not sure what would be more ironic:
- Singing a song about freedom and bravery in the security checkpoint line.
- Getting arrested for it.
- Having to censor words in the song.
Oh, even more ironic:
- That you're afraid to.
