Dandyism Incarnate

Losing a Camera

We went to Epitome in the morning and played with our computers…

In the evening, Yuko went to a party. It was some kind of anniversary celebration for the kindergarten where Yuko used to work. It was held at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel in the city.

When she was ready to come home, she called me and I drove over to pick her up. It was around this time that the debacle began to unfold…

Four Points Hotel

Yuko was waiting out the front of the hotel when I arrived. She jumped in the car and we headed home. When we stopped outside our house, Yuko uttered the dreaded words: “Where’s my camera?”

It quickly became apparent that she had left it somewhere at the hotel!

She called the hotel and after negotiating the usual automated menu system, got through to the dude who deals with lost property – Eric. He said that no camera had been handed in, but said he would ask the staff to look for it in the area where Yuko thought she had left it – on a chair in the foyer.

After a few minutes, he called back to say they had found it! It was still on the chair where Yuko had left it – at least 40 minutes earlier!

So we jumped in the car and drove back to the hotel. I waited in the car while Yuko when inside. She emerged holding the camera. She was very happy indeed…

For helping her to negotiate this debacle, I told Yuko that she has to be nice to me for one week. However, instead she gave me ten ‘points’ which entitle me to ten points worth of niceness over the coming days.

    What is a point worth, when rendered onto female favours

    I think it’s just the usual stuff – Like I’m allowed to leave the house.
