Settling back into “real life” after a relaxing couple of weeks away. I was surprised when I got an email from Ollie at Windward Cottages. The subject line said “left in cottage.” Hmmm….Joseph and I always do a “last sweep” of closets and drawers, so I thought “what could we possibly have left?”
When I opened up the email, I saw “undergarments” and cringed. I know I took the last shower, so whatever was left was mine. I hoped I just left socks. I know they technically aren’t undergarments, but I was red-faced enough. Too embarrassed to call Ollie myself, I asked Joseph to do it.
The next day, Joseph called Ollie from work. When he came home, he had a devilishly sheepish look on his face. I cringed again. “Did you talk to Ollie?” I asked. “Yes,” he said, and burst out laughing.
Fortunately, I didn’t leave dirty underwear. Unfortunately, what I left was my sports bra. Now, dear readers, I’m a big girl, so my everyday bras are big to begin with. But my sports bra, complete with everything structural that holds my everythings in and up while hiking, is huge!!! I just wanted to crawl under the chair and stay there until the red in my face became at least a nice shade of pink.
I didn’t, of course. And Ollie put my bra in the mail. Embarrassing? Yes! A funny end to vacation and a good story? Yes and yes!
Already missing Ollie and our Windward Cottages cottage…
