Ah, but have you had the opposite: After sitting around for 2 hours waiting for takeoff on a 10 hour flight someone says "Aaaaaaah! I have to take my medication which is in my checked luggage!!!"

Thankfully I have not, but one of my coworkers did. It stank - instead of leaving they had to taxi back and unload the plane. Of course, it is hard no argue that whomever that was did not need some sort of help. Though I wonder if they were concerned about the TSA confiscating the medicine. That actually could be a real concern, and medicine tends to be expensive and hard to replace.

Yuck. I'd be very irritated at someone who did that. I mean, all of the packing advice (including the TSA docs about what you can and can't bring, and the airline stuff) says "take your medicine in your carry on". I mean, what if they lose your bag?

That said, I wouldn't be advocating not letting the person get it, that just isn't right.

Thankfully I've never been that person, when I fly I'm paranoid enough that my medication stays on my person. No, not my carry on my pocket. Only once have I had the TSA even ask what was in my pockets. This is why I avoid the millimeter wave detection line at ABQ like the plague they won't even let you have a piece of paper in your pocket. Once I was forced into that line and held my pillcase up with my wallet.

That is the right way to do it (carrying the pills with you). I leave them in my backpack, but I'm pretty damn sure I'm taking that thing with me in case of a water landing (or what have you).

But then again, I can get more of mine at most pharmacies with an emergency call to the doctor.

One of my volunteers took home a giraffe, and I think she was planning to carry it on. It was made of teak and only about three feet tall, I think, though. Does that count?

... I suppose that's ok. 3 feet tall?

Yup. I am a little surprised she didn't try to have it shipped home. I think she wasn't going to, then was, then didn't manage to in time or changed her mind. I hope it didn't break in the overhead compartment home.

It's really a small one, though. Want one? I could get us one. Or an even bigger giraffe carving, if you'd like. I continue to draw the line at that enormous carving of the rhino giving birth, though.

3' is "really small"? :)

Not unless you want one. If you do, hey, I like giraffes.

In fact, yes, 3' is "really small". I'm pretty sure they carve giraffe as big as you are.

However, I think we can skip the small to giant giraffe carving. Anything else you want?
