I had a great time in Hawaii, but I am so glad to be back home in Los Angeles. Jim and I arrived yesterday morning and I've already had a conversation with the manager of the resort we stayed at in Poipu, Kauai. First, I identified myself. Then I quickly got to the point of my call.
"...I was a guest last weekend and I inadvertently left some items in our room."
The friendly woman in the other end cheerily replied, "I can check with housekeeping. Which room were you in?"
I heard her tapping on a keyboard. "Okay, what did you leave behind?"
"I left a Hawaiian-print dress on top of the hamper in the bedroom facing the ocean."
"It had a black background, with ivory and red hibiscus flowers."
"Okay. What else?"
"Pink and black Hello Kitty panties. I left both the dress and the panties on top of the hamper in the closet."
She was quiet on the other end, no tapping on the keyboard.
Carefully, she asked, "Hello Kitty panties?"
"Yes," I laughed, "Pink and black, Hello Kitty."
I heard her laugh, then tap something out. "Okay, I'll check with housekeeping and call you right back."
Minutes later, she calls me back.
"I talked to housekeeping. They found the dress and sent it out to be dry-cleaned. I can mail it out to you as soon as it comes back from the cleaners."
"Great!" I exclaimed.
"Unfortunately, they didn't find your Hello Kitty panties."
