#223 Lost Luggage

When the airline loses your bags for three days, it sucks. Make no mistake, it’s a massive inconvenience. I’m a girl who can camp in the woods and wear the same clothes for five days without a shower. No problem. Well, maybe my husband or anyone within a five mile radius of me might have a problem with it. But when I’m in a proper city, I do enjoy a hot shower and a clean pair of underwear. So when the airline loses my one bag that not only has my clothes, but all my makeup and toiletries, it’s a serious pain in the butt. Again, I can go without makeup but I was meeting my favourite musician and wanted to look my best, which, at forty-years-old, requires cosmetics. So off we went to Bloomingdales to get all my makeup, underwear, socks, bras, and a few items of clothing that seriously exceeded the $100 voucher the airline gave us. I mean, what were we going to get for $100? One shoe? But when the airline loses all your stuff and has already bumped you off one flight, I guess you’ve got no choice but to shop your brains out and buy a new wardrobe. And THAT CHANGES EVERYTHING!
