I love when my imaginary world intersects, however briefly, with my reality.
India wrote to me at the hotel today.
The salutation was rather general: “Attn: Purchase Manager / House Keeping Manager / Director”, yet the offer to purchase “hotel towels” in bulk quantity was articulated clearly in a heart-warming, yet business-like manner. The towels were advertised as 86% cotton; 14% polyester and were available in various colors.
How will I respond to Mr. Hotel India? How’s this: “Thank you for your kindly spam. Please note that I mostly offer my real guests 100% cotton towels trimmed with large doses of make-believe and occasionally, tulips.”
— Respectfully yours, Half Century Mark Hotel Owner/Operator/Director/Caretaker/Concierge
Love the life you imagine.
