Penny walked with two of her humans to the railway station today. She watched quite happily as one got on board and the train rattled away (our public transport system rattles in a twentieth-century way rather than glides in a twenty-first century manner).
Then it was surprise time. Where was the missing pack member? Obviously she had walked through the train to the other platform. Penny wasn't going anywhere till she solved this mystery. And she's very strong despite her size. So we went under the subway tunnel to check out the platform on the other side of the rails. No-one there! What an enigma! We looked up and down the platform, in the waiting room, then checked out gardens in neighbouring streets.
It was a slow trip back to the house...
Fortuantely, when Penny walked back to the station in the evening the missing human emerged correctly on the other platform and walked back to the house with us.
I think we'll have to accompany people to the station more frequently so that Penny can gain confidence that trains do eventually disgorge the humans they swallow.
