I love the mayhem in luggage claim areas in airports. A recent terrifying experience I've had was this: while trying to get the boys to sit still (yeah, right, they've been sitting still for hours!) I was frantically having day-nightmares (what's the word for that?) that a stranger would mistake my suitcases with his/hers and I would be stuck with someone elses bags minus all the stuff I meticulously packed. And believe me, I really packed - two separate suitcases for 4 people for 8 days, three hotels, skiing etc. So the thought of losing our stuff wasn't what freaked me out, but the thought of having to go through the whole packing process and not getting anything good out of it did.

Someone found a somewhat applicable solution to ease fears such as mine. It's not a phobia. Really.

My favorite is "you won't look good in my clothes." He hee.

They're very cute and available for purchase from Bright & Bold - but when everyone buys them I would be left alone with my (no matter how baseless) fears of mistaken suitcases. Again, it's not a phobia. And it will never happen to me.

There's nothing scary about losing your bags, actually it is fun. I got mine lost, mislaid, sent somewhere else at least six times. As per regulations the carrier company has to supply you with an overnight bag, including all the necessities, toiletries, etc. When your bags are found they deliver them to your door saving you the hassle at the customs.
