When staying in hotels, we love to have our bed made for us, but tend to be creeped out at the fact that a stranger is alone with some of our belongings. (This stems from a family vacation as a child when a dress that belonged to our mother was stolen by the maid.) To offset the creepy factor, we love it when a hotel will leave some chocolate, mints, or cookies out for us. Yes, our belly is the way to being lulled by creepy McCreepsters.
But some places don’t do the chocolate, cookies or mint thing. Instead, they do the animals made out of towels thing. On our recent cruise, this towel thing happened (though they initially gave us delicious cookies). We remember having a snake, a dog (or cat), an elephant, and this… thing!
For the life of us, we couldn’t figure out what it was, and we are still perplexed by it. Our best bet is that it was an abominable snowman.
It’s an odd little message to leave for someone after having turned down their bed for them. It’s a passive way of saying, “Sleep tight, I was just all over your room, and in the drawers that had your underwear. I totally just smelled your boxers cause I’m weird like that. I can come in whenever I want to. I’ll be watching you sleep tonight and tomorrow I’m going to use 35 towels to create a lifesize towel version of you sitting on the toilet.”
In other words, it’s the perfect mindf*ck!
