A made man

So I cleared the US Customs “Global Entry Program” which means no more lines when I go hither and fro from the UK to the States. One of the customs officers asked if I was a Red Sox fan, a safe question to answer in a National League city, and he waxed poetic about his ambition to see the inside of Olde Fenway. I told him I was a season ticket holder, which is like wearing a pinkie ring and driving a Caddy for the Gambino Family when it comes to being a made man in Boston. I passed the background check which means I get to be that douchebag you hate. That guy who can breeze through the TSA with his belt and shoes on, laptop and liquids safe in his bag. Tis the season of being licensed and ticketed. I feel highly important as a result.

    It is not the Global Entry Program membership that generates my antipathy for you, but the season tickets. However, remember: I have chickens.

    Not even sure where to start with the jealousy on this one. All of the above?

    Congratulations, that was the 10,000th comment on this blog. Lifetime supply of Eskimo Pies and an one-way ticket to New Bedford.
