One might expect that Artie's office would be baggage free. In fact, one would be wrong. There was, for instance, a bag that said PERMANENT PRESS PANTS on it, which was clearly part of a matched set with the one that said ALUMINUM SIDING.

Perhaps the strangest, though, was the large, old fashioned steamer trunk leaning against the wall by the door which read GERTRUDE STEIN.

Artie just didn't seem to have noticed they were there, yet.

Aquaman had another random piece of luggage show up from the time portal or whatever it was, but this one wasn't as easy to figure out as the last one. So he thought he'd go around and ask.

He knocked on the doorframe, holding a sparkly orange suitcase. "Excuse me, office neighbor!" he said. "You wouldn't happen to know anyone on our teaching staff named..." He checked the tag again, "DENIAL, would you?"

"Isn't it, though?" asked Aquaman, holding it out with an admiring smile and giving it another look over. He just assumed that pipe was a good thing; what else could it have been? "That's why I'm so keen on making sure it gets back to its owner; I know I'd be pretty put out if I'd misplaced such a great bag!"

"A contest?" asked Aquaman. "Why, I didn't even think of that! I don't think I remember entering one, but it's..." He tilted his head, moving the bag to be viewed at a different angle, "just outrageous."

"You know," said Aquaman, shouldering the bag, "by Neptune's Beard, I am! It even matches my outfit!"

"It's just such a shame," said Aquaman, shaking his head and not wanting to be a Debbie Downer, but it was true, "that it didn't come with matching boots."

"Er," said Aquaman,who not only didn't want to be a Debbie Downer, but he didn't want to be rude, either, so he had to think about that one for a second. "Well, I tend to need boots that are a bit more...waterproof than construction paper. I'm not called Aquaman for nothing, you know!"

Aquaman couldn't help watch the frog land with a little plop.

"Oh, you look just fine!" Aquaman assured him in response to a frog modding ribbit. "Just walk it off, my amphibious ally!"

And then, to his office neighbor, he kindly offered, "You wouldn't happen to have any...I don't know...boots for making boots out of in there, would you?"

If anything, it would at least be interesting to see how this turns out.

"Vincent," that was apparently the modded frog's name, "say it's over there."

"Who's Clark?" asked Aquaman. "I've got a student in my class called Clark. I didn't know he was a frog fan."

"...We might be talking about different Clarks," Aquaman said thoughtfully. "Although maybe not. He doesn't look like he's had amnesia, but it does seem to happen a lot if you're not careful."

"Ah," said Aquaman, having no idea what the other man was talking about but just rolling with it anyway, "such a sad thing to happen, to lose one's precious memories. But you did get him to recall? That's wonderful!"

"The craftsmanship," said Aquaman after a moment of looking over them, "is...impeccable. These are undeniably outrageous, my good friend."
