Seashells and airport security

Did you know seashells get flagged for extra screening when going through airport security?

This fact became much more important as I stood in the security line and my phone said boarding had started on our plane.

Each kid had hidden a shell in their carry on.

We were going to make it or not make the flight. Me getting worried about what I would do if we missed our flight was not going to help my odds of success. In fact, if I got cranky, I could make it worse.

I decided to just smile and relax.

The kids and I did make it, but it was a near thing.

What unknown facts have you had sneak up on you? How did you handle it?
