I tried ordering the wine check and couldn’t wait for it to arrive.
And I waited.
It’s now in my closet, but it never came in enough time for me to take to Texas. So I had to find another solution to deliver wine to Tiff.
The wine came in its own case, so I knew I could transport it safely in that case.
But I could only carry so much, so I didn’t know how I could make it through the airport with my luggage, carry-on, and a case of wine.
In the words of Samuel Beckett, Oh Boy.
Ziggy didn’t come to my rescue, but I did wander around the Container store for a while, looking for a solution. And I found one.
A strap handle for packages. I had no idea if it would last the journey, but it would at least help me get to the airport.
Sure enough, I got to the airport and checked it. Arrived in DFW, and this is what came out of baggage claim:
A fully intact case of wine.
I used the handle to help me carry it to the car rental center. After which, I didn’t need to worry about the case anymore 😉 (I made Tiff take care of it).
The handle substantially helped in carrying the wine. I unfortunately paid about $6 more than Amazon, but since I live near a Container Store, it was worth it for peace of mind.
