Anyway, due to the Brits' unexpected 'intelligence', a terrorist attack was brilliantly foiled and new security measures were put into place. No liquids or fluids were allowed on the plane. Now, I found this rule quite stupid because I needed to keep my retainers submerged in a Tupperware box filled with water. Since water was not allowed, whenever a security guard was in sight, I had to take my retainers from the box and put it in my mouth and empty the water in the nearest dust bin. To my distress, there were many security guards and many many security checks. You may ask me, "Why didn’t you just keep the damn retainers in your mouth the whole time?" Well I could not eat with the retainers in my mouth and when you go to the airport 5 hours before the scheduled take-off, you tend to feel a tad bit hungry an hour into the whole process.
