I had lunch in Fahrenheit lately at this Japanese ramen place that Shorty has been egging me to go for the longest time. On the way out I passed by this luggage shop and it dawned on me that I don’t actually have a decent big-sized bag for travel. I have this small bag that I carry around which is fine for up to a week of clothes but anything beyond that and it’s over.
So I decided to go buy a luggage bag. Not one of those expensive Samsonite ones but a simple one. I ended up buying this bag.
I think it’s the BEST LUGGAGE BAG in the world! Why? Because it’s sooo ugly and it’s bright colour just makes it stand out. Hang on… just realized that the first picture doesn’t really show how odd the colour is. Here’s another picture.
Check out this blue.
It still doesn’t do justice enough on how it looks like in real life but believe me it’s worse in real life. It’s the same kind of blue our secondary school girls wear to school on their pinafore.
Tell me that just looking at a picture of this doesn’t hurt your eyes already. Imagine how easy this bag will be to spot on the baggage reclaim conveyor belt at the airport.
I made a mistake once of getting a black bag. Since then, at EVERY baggage reclaim I have to keep looking out at each black bag that comes out… and that’s like a hundred of them each time. Now on the other hand, I can roll out my deck chair and just take a nap while waiting for my bag to come out. When my bag comes out, I’ll be awaken by the uglyness of its blue.
Not only that… you never have to worry about anyone else accidentally taking your bag because… who else in the world would buy such an ugly looking bag. Nobody would steal it too because…. who else in the world would want that bag? Heck even if I left it at the airport unattended I’m sure the cops won’t even consider it a potential “bomb threat” because… which terrorist would put a bomb in a bag that stands out so much.
Shorty says that it looks like a big fat Smurf. I love my Smurf bag.
