I travel quite often for my job and this past Wednesday was just like any other. I took a late Air Canada flight out of Edmonton to Yellowknife after doing an all day Career Fair at U of A. Once arriving in Yk at around 11pm with the rest of the Japanese tourists on the plane, I found myself alone still waiting for my luggage.
My worst nightmare has come true. My small silver luggage never made it to Yellowknife. Good god. I did a mental check as to what I had in my backpack to survive.
Cliff Bar and water
Laptop and charger
Cellphone and charger
Touque and scarf – It’s getting chilly in the North
Makeup and comb
I gave myself extra to items that are super essential when I travel. If I wore contacts, I wouldn’t have had my solution or contact case with me. It was genius idea Val, to wear glasses today (which is RARE). I was super proud of myself and my readiness for missing luggage. Air Canada even gave me a little kit of tooth brush, paste, comb, deodorant, shower supplies in a nice little reusable lunch bag/kit.
I just had to wear the same clothes I was wearing the day before but that’s not bad at all.
That being said…
PRIORITY 1 (P1): BUY UNDERWEAR!!!!!
My friend in town drives me out to the Wal-Mart during our lunch break so I can run this ridiculous errand of purchasing underwear to last me until I get my luggage. I am now subjected to wear some granny fucking panties that Wal-Mart offers..
I strut off with the best 6 pair of undies for $13 package Wal-Mart has to offer. As I was walking to the front, my ankle twisted weird and I went down hard in the middle of the aisle. Clutching the package of underwear for dear life, I shuffled over to the cashier completely humiliated and embarrassed.
My life has just hit a new low.
