A mink stole.
It looked something like this:
I was heading back from my mother “s funeral and had taken this from her belongings, as I had played with it when I was a child.
When I got to the airport it was an interesting experience.
The TSA scanned it, and thought I had a ferret in my bag. They freaked out at the scanner, pulled me aside and opened the bag, eyeing me warily. Then, they pulled it out and stared at it for a good long time.
I explained it was my mom’s and so on, but they really weren’t thrilled with having to repack it.
