So my mom asked me to send her a few things to Mexico including the rest of her can of special aluminum-free baking powder.
I can just see the Customs officer reading through my declaration slip--
"Spanish/English electronic translator--check
Floss Threaders--?--uh, check
Baking Powder--Hmm, this can is opened. And filled with loose white powder--Hah! You can't pull one over on ME--into the quarantine you go, with all the rest of these items which were so obviously included merely to throw me off the scent!"
And so I'll save the baking powder for a shipment that they don't need in a hurry. It will be an interesting experiment. I'm planning to send it along with Mom's prescription medication as soon as it comes in the mail. Hmm, I've been waiting on that for a few weeks now. I wonder if it had to clear Customs. . .
