I really need that first cup of coffee after. Do I go for the Starbucks and plan ona longwait for security?
No. Hunker down and get the chores done. Oops, no waiting at the TSA station. Having put EVERYTHING doubtful in my check-through, the scan is easy enough. (Don’t even think about having to choose between x-rays and pat-downs.) My aura beats your nervousness in spades. The people in Southern Sudan and Somalia need your good thoughts today more than you do.
Laptop (actually a smaller, “netbook”) hat shoes jacket belt and pockets into 3 trays. Done!

Hey, there’s a Peets between TSA and the gate! Plenty of time to enjoy it.
