Know what sucks? Not being able to check luggage when you fly. See, I'm going to LA tomorrow for two days and I'm flying with my boss. He has forbidden me from checking luggage which isn't a huge deal for a two day trip. Unless you're me and you need lots of liquids. Liquids like shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, face lotion, hair product, mascara, lip gloss, should I keep going or do you the idea? And I only get to bring 3 ounce bottles of stuff and one zip top bag.
This is why I don't vacation for just a couple of days. When you go for more than three days you're expected to check luggage. You're expected to bring toothpaste. And a full sized deodorant. Glorious, glorious full sized things. When we went to Maui I brought 40 bottles of sunscreen. Just. Because. I Could.
The other issue with not checking luggage is that it takes up one of the two vital carry on spots you get. So tomorrow the camera will have to go into the luggage. As well as my laptop. And my in flight entertainment will have to be carried in my purse. So it can't be anything bigger than a book. This is not going to end well. I need lots of stuff to make me forget that I'm in the air. I need lots of stuff to keep my mind off of the fact that I might puke right into the lap of the stranger sitting next to me.
Oy, at least there will be drinks poolside when I land.
