We made it back from the rally, 3rd place! YAY! Would not have been able to do it if I didn't have Oscar. If any of you would like to see it: www.naparally5000.ca
Quick hahaha for everyone:
We were in the Montreal airport (on our way back to Edmonton) yesterday, going through the sanner things when the buzzer went off when I walked through. No biggie...I stand with my arms out and the very non english speaking security guard waves the wand over my tummy region. The button on my jeans was making it go off and she does the universal sign for "can I go in your pants??" (love that sign!) anyway...so she is running her hand around the waist band when she see's/feels the top of my pouch. She starts kinda freaking and I say very calmly "it's a colostomy," she very clearly does not understand. I say "it's a medical appliance" and she gives me the "Pug".....the head tilted to the side "im confused" look. I finally say VERY loudly in the middle of the Montreal airport....."Poop comes out here" and pointed to my tummy. Another security guard realized what was happening runs over, takes me by the arm and starts apologising profusely. It's at this point my husband walks out of the body scanner and say's even more loudly "they just saw my junk!" By this time im laughing so hard Im almost crying, the security guard is asking me question's about my tattoo's (where, when, how long? yada yada yada) and im trying to get into the scanner. They do the scan, which last's not even 10 seconds, I walk out and say "I think they saw alot more then my junk!" and everyone within earshot starts howling with laughter. Oh Oscar, is there anything we can't do together??
