Matching luggage. Check. Digital camera and memory card. Check, check. Walking shoes, already broken in. Check. Body lotion and toothpaste packed in check-in bag with firearms, brass knuckles, nanchakus, ammunition and stun gun? You probably wouldn't need the entire contents of this suitcase, but you could check them in if you wanted. It's when it comes to carry-on luggage that the post Sept. 11 restrictions pile up. Don't even think about carrying lotion, liquid makeup, lip gloss or an emergency tube of toothpaste in your carry-on. Yes, your toiletries are dangerous, a potential threat to humanity.
An oozing mess of pressurized shampoo and body lotion dripping from overhead compartments is not TSA's (Transportation Security Administration) reason for banning some toiletries, but rather terrorism threats involving household products.
