Left Behind

Last night as I opened my suitcase to take some things out, I was a little creeped out to find something I'd never seen before. Something I know isn't mine. I found a little blue and gold earring in among my sweaters. I was a little boggled until I realized that it probably belongs to some poor TSA woman who was searching my suitcase yesterday. There was no piece of paper that announced that my suitcase had been opened; I guess they leave their calling cards in a different way these days.

SO! If you are a TSA baggage checker from either Boston or Detroit who just happened to stumble upon this blog, and you are missing a little gold earring with a tiny blue stone in it, leave me a comment, eh? And I KNOW my suitcase wasn't really packed neatly, but...I refuse to be embarrassed. Come on, it was the return trip, okay?

Then, in the middle of the night, I had a fierce itch between two of my toes. A little later, I itched in several other places. In the fogginess of my sleepy logic, I was seriously convinced that the TSA woman who left her earring behind must have also had fleas and that some of them must have jumped off into my suitcase and now had taken up residence upon me. Fortunately, I was merely delusional.

It's always nice to have souveniers from trips. :)

June is chewing on a rawhide bone...thing. It's like a really, really big, really hard rolled up tortilla. I don't know what she sees in it, it smells about as appealing as paste.

When I went to NH in August I found a sharpie pen in my suitcase, which I definitely hadn't placed there! Seems like a pretty random thing to leave in a suitcase. Probably somebody is desparately wondering where their earring is!

So I'm a little unclear. Did they search your bags without your knowledge? Because if that's the case, too bad you didn't get more from the snoop.

Claire, I lied on my blog about sending you an email. Actually, I didn't lie, I did send you an email. But turns out I have an old email address for you. I'm pretty sure that you have my email, and DJ does too...can you write me so I can get your currect email address, so we can start working on details about that cup of coffee? Thanks.
