It was a shock to my system to roll out of bed at 3.30 am after a fitful few hours of sleep to get ready for my 6 am flight out to Chicago and then on to Pittsburgh. It helped that I was selected for ‘TSA Pre’ treatment at the airport. ‘TSA Pre’ is a program for frequent travelers that allows them entry into a special lane at the security checkpoint. The traveler gets to keep on shoes and jacket, and liquids and computers in the bag. Wow! But don’t get too spoiled! It will not happen every time even if you travel a lot.
