Lined with Hi Would you explain these sentences in this context? 1- Lined with 2- bulging During a routine mail screen that can take horses, the dogs stay so focused that not even a postcard lined with 0.5 grams of heroin and hidden and hidden in a bulging sack of letters escapes detection. Thank you

“Lined with” means that the heroin is in between two layers of something else — Here, the heroin is apparently somehow slipped in between the layers of paper that make up the postcard. “Bulging” means so full that the sides of the mailbag are pushing outwards, barely able to contain the mail that is inside.
