A glamourous life
This is the boybean getting his passport photo taken. Thats me under the sheet. The bean's too small to stand in front of the pulldown white screen (obviously) so i had to be it. Its a good look at the post office dont you think? It drew a few comments from customers, obvious ones about hijab and travel and airport checks. An interesting anecdote came from a woman just back from a round the world trip who had been stopped 17 times at airports, having never been checked before. It wasnt until she got to Morocco and asked a friendly security staffer what might be going on. She found out they were 3 points short of being hauled in as major terrorist suspects having 1) paid cash for their tickets 2) purchased tickets 3 days before departure and 3) her husband had a beard. I might remove the sheet before travel.
