This Suitcase Smells Like DOG & Airport Security Comic Relief



WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! This suitcase smells funny.

KATIE:  Funny-ha-ha-funny or funny beyond-expiration-date-funny?

WAFFLES:  I don't know. What do expiration dates smell like?

KATIE:  Well I know Glogirly said she was bringing home some special swag from the BarkWorld conference. You don't suppose...

WAFFLES:  You mean like something that BARKS???

KATIE:  She wouldn't DARE. Would she???

WAFFLES: *shrugs shoulders*

KATIE: You better go in. If you don't come back out, it was nice knowing you. *heh, heh...crosses paws*



Airport Security Comic Relief
Glogirly made it home from the conference safe and sound. Apparently it was touch and go for awhile at the airport. While she was going through the giant body x-ray machine in security...you know, the one that looks like a huge tube you walk inside and the rounded glass doors slide shut?

Well she walked inside and stood on the little yellow footprints and then held her hands up in the air just like the sign inside shows. 

All of a sudden a tiny Asian woman, probably about 80 years-old and 4' tall, walked inside with her, holding her hands up high. The door slammed shut and they were both inside. Then there was that awkward "OMG, there's a little old lady in the x-ray machine with me" moment for Glogirly. 

If you don't believe us, just ask Sparkle. Her human was there and saw the whole thing. 

More To Come On BarkWorld
Be sure to check back...We'll be sharing more fun from the BarkWorld conference. Some cool stuff Glogirly learned, some fun plans she has and a swag giveaway!

So glad you're back! MOL about security. Those machines scare me. I went through one in Toronto and they pulled me over saying I had traces of gunpowder on my hands. Turns out it was traces of the cookie I ate.

That second suitcase is all swag, right?

Ann Staub said...

Hope you make it out of the suitcase OK Waffles ;)

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

My human says that little old Asian lady was definitely a weird TSA moment! My human unpacked her BarkWorld stuff and Binga has already... well, that's probably going to be Tuesday's post.

The Kitties of Purring Pines said...

Does Waffles make it out of the bag?!?!? Bet the TSA peeps got a good laugh! MOL! We're glad Glogirly is home safe. Looking forward to hearing more.

Austin Towers said...

Perhaps the 4ft Asian lady stowed away with Waffles in that huge bag?

Old Kitty said...

LOL!! What happened to this little asian lady!?!?! How surreal!! LOL!

Awww Waffles Too! Did you find a little woofie pal?!?!

Hello lovely Katie! Take care

Glogirly sure gets in trouble when you aren't around to boss her around Katie.

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

MOL! Did they scan both Glogirly and the little Asian woman at the same time? That sounds like a scifi accident waiting to happen in which Glogirly emerges 4' tall and unexpectedly bilingual...

Nicola Carpenter said...

Maybe the little old lady was scared to go on her own?

We hope Glogirly did not bring a dog home, surely she wouldn't have got that through airport security. They have some standard, you know.

Hilary said...

oh man! Poor Glogirly!

It was sooooooooo great seeing you and spending time with you at BarkWorld, it was just the best!
xoxoxo

Random Felines said...

can't wait to see what Waffles found in the suitcase.

Really??? She went in with you?? What the heck? (mom says she would have been on the floor laughing)

Mariodacat said...

ha ha - what was that little old lady thinking anyway. That thing barely looks large enough to hold one human, not to mention 2 humans.

The Island Cats said...

We hope there was some good kitty sway in that bag...and you guys found it!

MOL about the Security debacle! What was that lady thinking??

Alice Marie said...

Swag? You better be careful...you never know what humans bring back from these trips.

Katnip Lounge said...

ha ha ha!!! Mommy says that's gotta be the weirdest security story she's ever heard!

Katie, we say PULL THAT ZIPPER!!!

Oh my dawg! Hilarious

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Did they swap parts or anything when they came out the other side? That would have been really wild...

ANGEL ABBY said...

OOPS ... and the TSA doesn't have a sense of humor now do they???? W2 we just had to laugh at you in Glogirl's suitcase. :)

Patty Woodland said...

Was the lady in a hurry or something?

Rene said...

Wow, now that's too close for comfort!

speedyrabbit said...

hahaha sorry but that is funny,xx Rachel

Nature by Dawn said...

Anything interesting in the suitcase, Waffles? It's been so long since I've been to the airport that I don't remember any x-ray machine. Interesting situation.

Brian said...

Oh, We saw that little lady at the hotel, but she wasn't swag and was supposed to stay there!

Cathy Keisha said...

As long as no touchy feely went on, there's no harm, no foul.

Lassiter Chase and Benjamin said...

Oh my dog. Hopes u both remembered to put deodorant on before sticking your arms up like that.

Eileen said...

Did she bring home presents???? What's in the suitcase Waffles?

Mom says, poor Glogirly, bad enough to have to go in the x-ray machine but to have to share it would be worse!

Me would LOVE to see a picture on that *mol*

Flynn said...

That is the funniest thing to happen! Mum usually ends up having to go in the X Ray machine because the plates in her leg set the scanner off.

Amelia Hughes said...

LOL...those machines are awkward enough without adding an accidental second human! Really looking forward to hearing more about your experience at BarkWorld!
