"Oh what hotel are you staying at?” my manager asked with an extra dose of perky curiosity. “My mom is going to be up there for a doll collectors’ convention this weekend!" Knowing full well that no hotel would ever book a doll convention the same weekend as a leather festival I said, “The Marriott.”
"That's where she's staying too!" my manager exclaimed. Apparently someone at the Marriott had a sense of humor.
