Part of the reason I needed to get on the flight was that back home I was meeting Lauren's boyfriend Nick for the first time. So I made an accurate first impression landing without any luggage.
Lost & Found number I was told to call later.
UPDATE: I called the airport that evening and they didn't have my suitcase. I called again the next day and they did have it. They shipped it to me with an odd, new, well-deserved luggage tag. :)
