Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 07/25/2022

Alan Weiss's Monday Morning Memo

Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 07/25/2022

Pre-covid, I was returning through Heathrow from a very successful London trip. I had stayed at the Marleybone Hotel and had thrown a handful of their great amenities into my carry-on bag.

At security, I was singled out, they did some kind of bomb test wiping my luggage with some substance, and suddenly, a constable was next to me. With utter British politeness, he told me that my bag had failed three different bomb tests, and what would happen next.

“I have a flight in two hours,” I informed him.“If you’re good to go, this will take only about 15 minutes,” he said smiling.

And if I weren’t “good to go”???

A security supervisor withheld my passport, and the constable and two security plainclothesmen asked me questions, each taking their own notes of my answers in little pads that looked to be the same as I used in grammar school for homework assignments.

Then a handler shows up with two cocker spaniels, one black and one brown and white.

“We’ll send the first dog in and see what happens,” said the constable, with a crowd now around the blocked-off security area. The dog sniffed the baggage and everything else within reach, and emerged again, unbidden, with that goofy dog smile.

“Ah, good news,” said my new buddy, the constable, “you’re free to go.”

“What about the black dog?” I asked.

“If the black dog went in you’d in all likelihood be spending at least the night with us,” he said, smiling.

I departed security and noticed to my immediate right British Air’s Concorde first class club (from whence I once boarded the Concorde). I sat down at the bar and the first bottle I saw was Jamieson’s. I told the bartender, “Give me a double, neat.”

I still drink Jamieson’s occasionally today in memory of that day. The problem, it turned out, was a hotel spray for the pillows that helps you to sleep. It sets off a bomb alert.

(Note: A man imprisoned unfairly for 42 years was finally exonerated and released six months ago. Last week he died in a motorcycle accident.)
