What Really Happened to the Red Scarf...
Today's post *snicker* is the tale *snicker* of the *snicker* red scarf. (sorry, it's really hard to control myself on this subject lol) If you haven't been reading for the last month or so, or haven't read through the archives, shame on you!
This once, though, I shall be nice and provide the link. Before scrolling down to *this* post, read the all about Team Egypt here, here, and finally, here.
So. I had just gotten off shift the other day, and I tarried for a while at the front desk, seeing as it was our night auditor's last shift. She and I get on rather well, and we began to reminisce. I made some disparaging comment or other on the subject of the red scarf.
Me: I wonder what happened to it.
Her: Oh, well that would be me...
Me: You know?!?! (I might have jumped up and down and clapped my hands in glee here...*cough* just on behalf of lifeshighway of course, I was only mildly interested.)
I am proud to say that the mystery of the scarf was a conspiracy! Our security dude was out cleaning up the pool area, and found that scurvy scarf. He brought it up to the the desk.
Him: I found this out by the pool
Her: ...what do you want me to do with it?
Him: Ida know.
Her: Put it there for now (points at desk corner)
Sometime later that night:
Her: (thinking) I do like a clean desk...ack. Stupid scarf. Oh look! A trash can! **swoosh**fmph**
Him: (takes all the trash cans out to the dumpster)
Fast forward a few hours to morning
Scarf-Man: (frantic) My scarf! My scarf!
Her: (oops...) I don't know what you're talking about
Him: Ask the night people!!
Her: I'm all over that (or words to the droll effect)
Her: (calls night guy) Dude, we never saw the scarf. We never touched the scarf. There IS no scarf. Comprende? (or words to that effect)
Needless to say, I am happy to find out WRH (what really happened), but a little disillusioned with WAH (what actually happened) but glad that I can share.
To be honest, if I had to pick one guest for that to happen to....
