Traveling? Better check your begiblees.

What are "begiblees" you ask? (pronounced buh-ji-bleez) Well, that's your business, not mine. But the first time I heard the word used was when a friend (whom you can follow here on Twitter: @jonnysinc) recently re-counted his personal TSA experience assuming the position for the full body scanner . . . and then reading the fine print that his "begiblees" were exposed to said TSA Security personnel. I also feel compelled to interject that this conversation was had in October, before all of this TSA hysteria began. #fingeronthepulse
