“Ridiculous, this country. Snow doesn’t stop Canada,” Dower raged.
“But this was a bomb scare,” Higgins sighed.
“Surely they’ve enough experience to deal with these things expediently.”
“Someone wanting a dump couldn’t fit his case in the stall. He asked someone to watch it but she got worried.”
“Did she check the bogs before she went code red?”
“She didn’t know his name and baulked at trying the cubicles.”
Dower scrutinised his companion, “You know this because?”
“It was my luggage.”
“You’re the friggin’ terrorist?”
Hands up, Higgins sniffed, “Problem is, after the controlled explosion, I haven’t any clothes for tonight.”

  1. A funny and well-written story, Michael. He’ll soon have the only clothes he’ll need. They’ll be provided by the prison. You even mention the word “bomb” today and you’re taken away. It happened to some businessmen in the U.S. some years ago. I heard they lost their jobs even though it was just supposed to be a joke. The authorities don’t consider that funny. 🙂 — Suzanne

  2. Last line had me laugh out loud. I know the feeling of being left with strangers’ luggage because the person ‘just wants to grab a snack’ and the plane/train/bus are about to depart … What a fun story.
