Attack of the Naked Man
I’ve had a lot of strange things happen to me while traveling. But what happened one early morning in Liechtenstein was something completely new.
It’s 6:45 AM in Liechtenstein. I’m sleeping in my bed in my cozy hotel room — actually getting my first decent sleep post-TBU, I should mention — when I’m awoken by knocking.
REALLY? At 6:45 AM? I roll over and try to go back to sleep.
It sounds like it’s my door. But who would be knocking on my door so early? There’s no reason why anyone would.
A third round of knocking.
This is ridiculous, I think to myself as I get up, throw on an actual pair of pants, and swing open the door —
Only to find a completely naked man in the hallway.
My jaw drops.
He’s at the next door down, middle-aged, a small towel resting on his shoulder but NOT where it SHOULD be! He turns toward me and I can see absolutely everything.
I slam the door.
I don’t know whether it’s a traditional morning greeting, a hookup gone wrong, or who knows what else. HOW DOES SOMEONE END UP NAKED IN THE HALLWAY?
The knocks continue long after I drop back into bed. But now I’m amusing myself thinking of all the reasons why someone would end up naked in the middle of a quiet three-star hotel in the middle of the principality of Liechtenstein!
What do you think happened?
