This is just a classic case of hijinks and being in just the right place at just the right time!
We were at the Kentucky Junior Classical League annual Latin convention on a school trip with our Latin club. The rules for the rooms were “no leaving rooms after midnight” or something. So of course, my friends who were in the room connected to ours decided to sneak out the window (we were on the first floor) to our neighbor’s room to hang out, leaving their windows open so they could return. Since they were quite afraid of getting in trouble, we of course decided to play to those fears and mess with them!
After they left, Chas W. and I went into their room and took EVERYTHING we could out and piled it all into their bathroom with the bathroom door closed and window left gaping open. We succeeded in truly making it appear as though the room had been ransacked by window-entering crooks!
When they returned an hour or two later, we positioned ourselves to listen as they climbed in the window and began freaking out about the empty room before them! They were in almost complete panic when they busted into our room to tell us that they had been robbed just moments before also poking their heads into the bathroom to discover their belongings were still there.
They were good sports about it, and so were we, as we help them put everything back. I think in the end Chas and I had the most fun that night!
That picture, taken by Chas W (all credit is due!) is the lift-able contents of their hotel room completely condensed into just their bathroom! Fun!
