Dear Airport Security
Thanks a lot for forcing me to throw out my mom's amazing homemade chicken soup last night. Now I know we're not supposed to bring liquids onto the plane, but please bear in mind that the soup was in fact frozen, so technically, that makes it a solid. I mean, it would take hours for 16 ounces of soup to defrost at room temperature, and since the flight from Albany to BWI was only 50 minutes, you can obviously see the flawed reasoning. Anyway, I guess I didn't read the TSA footnote that chicken soup is a threat to homeland security. The fact that you can bring duty free alcohol onto the plane but not frozen soup pretty much nullifies any sort of legitimacy to this annoying if not asinine policy.
