Pat Jones not the only one who confronted me in Atlanta

Lest I be thought to be making too much of Pat Jones' confrontations of your editor during my trip to Atlanta I 'fess up to another confrontation quite unrelated to IBTTA.

It was around 3am Monday morning at an Econolodge where I was staying near the Atlanta Airport.

A very deliberate rapping at the door woke me from a deep sleep.

I staggered to my feet, flung open the door, saying sleepily "Whadda-Ya-Want?"

It was a security guard, a big black uniformed guy.

"Sir, you curtain is open," he said.

"Yes," I said. "I like to wake with the sun, so sure, I leave my curtain open. What's the problem?"

Guard: "The problem, Sir, is that other guests walk past your window."

"Ok," I said, "And what's the problem with that?"

Guard: "Sir, you are naked."

I looked down at myself.

Unlike Pat Jones, he was right.

And I had to concede: a pretty sight, it was not, for any passers-by.

Curtain closed  - editor.
