The border between Canada and the US was due to reopen temporarily, but nobody knew for how long. I was determined to cross it. However, as a UK citizen, this would be illegal.
As part of my disguise as an American, I stole a small brown suitcase tagged for someone from the southern states. I emptied it in a toilet cubicle, away from the prying eyes of CCTV. From the contents of the case I realised that I should assume the identity of an old man with an enormous waist.
This would be tricky, but I would go through with it – and kindly post the belongings back to my ‘sponsor’ once I had completed my mission.
