Default Stopper slid into my carboy

I was making Brandon O's Graff today and everything went well until the very end.

I sprayed my rubber stopper with StarSan and inserted it into the mouth of the carboy and it slid right into my Graff. I'm not extremely worried about it ruining the graff, but I have no idea how to get it out in two weeks. Suggestions, anyone?

Put a shirt into the carboy but not all the way in, roll the stopper on top of the shirt and pull it out.

I have used a plastic bag from the grocery store. I inserted it into my carboy while holding one handle of the bag. I bounced the stopper into the bag, then pulled it right out by the bag. Took maybe 30 seconds or so to get it out.
