Hotel, breakfast, caught

Who’s Been a Naughty Boy Then?

As I opened the door of the hotel room, I caught a glimpse of movement. A dainty foot slithered over the satin sheets, making a ripple.

I realised, with some embarrassment, that I had intruded upon a sacred moment. The couple beneath the covers were enjoying that moment of enrapture.

There was no ‘Do not disturb’ sign over the door handle to indicate that this was an inopportune, special moment.

I put the tray down on the side table and shouted “Breakfast” then ran quickly from the room.

Gosh, you really do see it all in the hotel trade, but I never expected to see Santa Claus and the Toothfairy enjoying each other’s company. 

What would Mrs Clause Say?

Well, surely that must place him at the very top of his Naughty list this year!
