An American Hero

Sitting at the gate in Boston.  Just got through the anticipated nightmare of checking my bags. Here's how it went down:

Bag man: "Final destination is Seoul, South Korea, correct?"

Me: "absofruitly"

(heaves bag #1 onto the scale: 45.5)

Me: "YES!! BOOM!!  NAILED IT!"  (turns around to face crowd and perform the Olympic gymnastics arms-in-the-air thing) 

(heaves bag #2 onto the scale: 54)

Me: "oh... fuuu"

Bag Man: "ehh,  close enough."

Me: (sheds silent tears of gratitude)

The moral of the story is this: Anyone can be an American Hero.
