I had to go to the Title Department to get the title for the Dog Mobile (long story I’ll tell you later). The Title Department is located in the courthouse here in Smalltown . . . and the entry has scanning devices. I put my purse and whatever metal objects I had in my pockets (my work keys and my work badge) onto the conveyor belt and walked through the metal detector. (By the way, I passed but I’m always nervous that it’s going to pick up on the metal plate in my left wrist.)
When I stopped at the end of the conveyor belt to pick up my purse, the deputy that scanned my purse joked with me about the spoon he saw on the scan . . . (from the yogurt that I had at work that morning) but never said a thing about the bottle opener I had in there from my last trip to the cemetery to have a beer with Prince Charming.
So now I’m wondering, is having a bottle opener in your purse is more common than having a spoon . . .
