The Perils of Modern Day Air Travel

Two of my girlfriends and I are flying to Chicago for a bridal shower/bachelorette party this weekend. One of our college roommates is getting married next month.

One friend, G, was charged with going to the store and buying something off the registry on behalf of all of us.

She called me from her cell phone at the store.

"There's a nice blender. We could all split the cost of it," she said.

"That sounds great!" I said from the office, trying to write 3 memos at the same time. I was sure that whatever she picked would be fine.

"I'm worried," she said. "There are blades in the bottom of the blender. In this post-September 11th high security world, what if we get stopped getting on the plane?"

Are blender blades really dangerous? They're all the way in the bottom of the container.

I suppose you could throw a blender over someone's head (someone's narrow, pointy head) and gash them with the blades. Well, assuming you had somewhere to plug it in.

The only other options were a KitchenAid Stand Mixer and an All-Clad lasagna pan.

The mixer seemed even more dangerous - all of those spinning and pointy attachments!

In the end, G went with the lasagna pan.

Although, it seems to me that the high-quality steel could really hurt someone if you decided to attack them with it.

But we're hoping the flight crew doesn't think of that.
