When I was a student at LSU, I once went to the library to study. I'd brought along some books that I'd bought at Schoenhof's Foreign Books, in Boston. I was unaware that there were still some security strips in the books I'd bought, and was surprised when I set-off the alarm, as I was leaving.

The bar that you push-open as you're leaving suddenly locks into place when the alarm is set off; I knocked the wind out of myself as my body continued moving forward, and tried to 'fold in two' at bar level, which is about stomach height.

A thorough examination showed that I wasn't vamoosing with library property.
Who hears all your prayers? Why, the NSA, of course!
