Traveling through airports, though, made me realize that this story is all the more appropriate.
A couple of weeks ago, when traveling through Tampa International Airport to Texas, six-year-old Owen Lake lost his utterly beloved stuffed tiger, Hobbes. His parents told the sad little-boy that Hobbes was on an adventure. Little did they know, he actually was.
The parents contacted lost-and-found at TIA and...well, here's what happened.
Lots of good moments in the report, but my favorite moment comes near the end when Owen explains how much he really, really loves Hobbes.
(Note: the news reporter mentions to the anchor that "We need some good news after Game Six." He's referring to the Stanley Cup Finals, where the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Tampa Bay Lightning.)
P.S. What the story doesn't mention is that, in addition to taking pictures of Hobbes's adventure, the airport also sent out a bunch of tweets from Hobbes about his day. To see a few of them, click here and scroll through the article.
