STARRING: the gold Miroir Alma PLACE: lobby of hotel in Colorado, registration desk ok, here's what happened: my friend Kerry (not a tPFer, at least not yet ) was on a business trip to Denver. She was at the check-in desk and was informed that, alas, there was no room reserved for her! Being an frequent business traveler, having of course made the reservation, and tired from the flight, she was a tad annoyed. She proceeded to figure out what to do, and set her LV MIROIR GOLD ALMA on the counter. The reservation clerk started sighing and doing the OMG OMG thing..."Girl, where did you get that bag??!! I need and want and must have that bag!! I am getting you a room now regardless of whether or not someone else gets moved! Anyone with that bag is my friend!!"" She actually started to cry in excitement, awe, and longing..., She got the ok from the hotel manager or someone high up like that, got a bellboy, tipped him HERSELF out of her own money, and Kerry was happily escorted to her room, with the Alma, natch. (nope, the clerk didnt get Kerry's bag LOL) I have yet to hear whether she found her Alma.....anyway, the story made me smile!!
