Writing 101, Day Sixteen: Third Time’s the Charm

Today’s Prompt: Imagine you had a job in which you had to sift through forgotten or lost belongings. Describe a day in which you come upon something peculiar, or tell a story about something interesting you find in a pile.



What if I came across a whole suitcase? What if it had no name or address? Carefully opening it to try and find a name or address inside there might be just clothes, shoes, maybe enough to guess where a person might have been going. Perhaps hiking boots and light waterproof clothing suggesting mountains near the equator. Somewhere hot and rugged.

Lost luggage is a worry for any traveller and when we travel I can’t help having that on my mind. Really though if you have insurance it’s an opportunity to go shopping for new things! If you are travelling with someone it’s worth sharing things between suitcases so you even if you lose one case you still have a few clothes etc.

I’m grateful to have never had the dilemma of sorting out lost luggage.
