Scratching and Scratching

Our first flight was from Colombo to Doha. The itch on that flight was driving me nuts. Just before midnight we touched down at Doha, an award-winning airport. A two hour wait lay ahead before we could board our long flight to Johannesburg. I decided to take my bra off. (Luckily I can get away with this!) I stuffed it into my bag. We had to go through customs. I scratched in my bag and fished out my passport. A voice behind me: “Ma’am….ma’am” and a tap on the shoulder. I turned around. He was pointing. And there was my black lacy bra lying on the spotless floor….
