Burrito vs. the TSA

This is a query that can only be answered on Chowhound...

EARLY tomorrow morning I have an LA to Tampa flight. Today I have to work all day today and the go STRAIGHT to class tonight. Class ends past 8pm then I gotta go home and pack and get to bed.

Originally, I had planned to get a burrito after class (I go to school in Taco Truck Heaven) to take with me on the plane to grub on on this long flight. But upon thinking this over, I think I might have a problem with the TSA, the burritos are wrapped in foil and ... I think the colorful nickname of "Silver Bullet" might be a little too close for confort when it goes through the Screener's X-Ray! (And add that to the fact that my coloring and facial features fit a certain 'profile'...:P) This is a business flight, I CAN NOT miss it...

So, am I just being paranoid or should I just change my option to Bahn Mi... Which is fine, but day old and refrigerated Bahn Mi is not as good as a burrito... Oh, and the terminal of the flight, has NOTHING in it... not even a freakin' starbux! :P

WWaHD? (What would a hound do?)
