When I went through security at the Seattle airport on Friday, I showed the TSA agent my passport. He studied it and studied it. Hoping to make light of the situation, I joked that it was indeed a terrible picture.
He agreed and said that I looked angry. He also added that he wouldn't like me if all he saw was my photo. He finally let me go through and now I understand why so many people don't like their passport photo.
I wonder if I can get a do-over on the photo.
