Flying the Dehydrating Skies

It looks as if there was a major terrorist plot foiled in Great Briton last night. In response, here in the USA, we have gone from Terror Level Bert to Terror Level Ernie on domestic flights and Terror Level Elmo on international flights.

Naturally, when I heard about this, I wondered: What does this mean for me?

Seriously, it means cotton mouth since I have to fly in a couple of weeks and they are not allowing liquids to be brought onto planes. I always like to have a bottle of water on the plane because they only give you small 4oz glasses of water and that simply isnt enough for me. I just hope that it is just at the security check point that they check for water and that I will be allowed to buy a small bottle in the airport's secure area before I leave.

On the other hand, maybe this will all blow over since nothing bad actually happened. Thank Goodness for that too.

I watched part of a program on CNN called 'We Were Warned'. It was pure fear mongering and it made me sick. the terror levels do to. I know I should accept it as part of air travel today but I don't want to.
is that okay too??
I have been given a full bottle of water upon request on a plane before... give it a try!
