Out of the Blue

I loved flying from Dublin to London and having my Guiness Mustard confiscated. At the same time the customs guy unhappily told me I could buy a new (also sealed) jar in the gift shop to my left.

Yes I'm proud to say my name is Irish - but I'm English, flying out of the ROI to my home. That wasn't done in the name of security it was done in the name of raising the airports revenue.

To be fair to the customs guy he really didn't want to confiscate it - but I was pretty drunk, barely holding it together enough to get on a plane and in no way could be bothered to argue.

PS I did buy another jar and used it on a Ham in Coke recipe - wasn't worth it, should have stuck to Dijon.

PPS To the credit of Ireland I actually didn't realize how drunk I was until on the 60 mile drive home I filled up my car with the engine running then forgot the handbrake when I did get home. I did finally sober up 2 days after we got home and since then both my wife and I have banned trips to Vegas, Dublin, Amsterdam etc etc.
