At Soccer City: Big cat sighting
Today's security checkpoint story, at Soccer City: The bag goes into the scanner. The coat, with cellphone inside, is passed to a security guard. "Okay, c'mon through," he says. The alarm goes off as I pass through the archway.
"What have you got in your pockets?" he asks.
"Nothing - it's all in my jacket. Maybe the lanyard?"
"No, no, can't be that."
He looks at me. Beat.
"Okay, you can go on through."
