In all my years of travel I have never had an issue with luggage being lost or ALMOST lost…until this last trip. Here I am standing at the baggage claim watching everyone else walk away with their bags. I wait.. and wait.. and wait.. finally no more bags are being uploaded. I hear airport personnel say, “that’s it..no more bags”. I’m thinking to myself, “WHAT!..my bag can’t be lost..how can you loose a big bright pretty beat up lime green luggage bag! I need my clothes!!” Suddenly a calm came over me and I thought, “SHOPPING SPREEEEEEEE!..hmmm..I’ll be here a month so that’s a LOT OF SHOPPING :)” Just as I was about to turn to my husband to deliver the horrible news that my bag had been lost I hear someone say, “Oh…there is one more cart coming up now” I thought, “Holy smokes bat-girl..no shopping spree for you LOL” I knew my bag would be coming up soon. Yep, It was there. LOL..
My son asked what would I have done if my bag was lost for good. I told him I would make an outfit out of whatever I had with me at the time. He laughed and doubted I could do it. I don’t like to be doubted 🙂 Sooooooooo I showed him. I had the blanket from my flight, a belt, a scarf, one pair of shoes, few accessories, and a handbag. LOL…. THEN he had the nerve to say, “I bet you won’t go outside in that”. I smiled and said,”really?” I went right out near the street and stood at the bus stop 🙂
Lessons learned: Never say you have nothing to wear ever again and son, NEVER doubt your mother..when I say I’m going to do something..I ALWAYS do it 🙂
Special thanks to North American Airlines for supplying the blanket because you kept that plane so freaking cold 🙂
Stay tuned for another post soon! Y’all take care!
