Here is Percy, my faithful neck support that comes with me on all my plane journeys. I am ready to head off on my Easter hols in a few hours and I have retrieved Percy from his hiding place in the spare room. But it has suddenly dawned on me....I don't know if I should bring him. I'm going to Abu Dhabi in the UAE. Having lived there for several years I know that pigs are regarded as unclean and are banned from all areas of life. In fact, in school we had the story of
The Three Little Lambs whose houses were blown down by the big bad wolf. And take it from me, it just didn't have the same dramatic effect as the original!
But I really need Percy as I am going on a night flight. I don't want to offend anyone, so I think I'll smuggle Percy in my handluggage..and depending on who I am sitting beside, Percy may be released.
