The Devil is in the Details - The Legend of the Two Bedroom Suite

The Devil is in the Details - The Legend of the Two Bedroom Suite

I had been in my current job, involving international travel for a while when my coworker who covered the African markets moved on to a new position.  It was a short window from the time I was told I'd be taking over the African markets to the day I stepped on the plane.

But, I was not to fear!  My coworker had e-introduced me to a travel buddy from another institution who would take me under her wing for my first trip to Africa.  She graciously planned our itinerary.  In the planning stages, I got a call from her one day.  She wanted to ask if I'd like to book a two bedroom suite for our hotel in rural Tanzania, as two single hotel rooms were to cost considerably more.  Although we hadn't met yet, in a budget conscious haste, I agreed.

Fast forward about a week.  We had known each other for a couple of days and were doing meetings in the large city of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.  Before we hopped on a small plane to our rural destination, we decided it would be necessary to leave our big suitcases at the hotel and pack a small bag with the things we would need for the couple of days in a more rural part of Tanzania.

After a long day, we head to the two bedroom suite at our new hotel, ready to get some alone time and R&R.  Grammar and syntax, my friends, is key when interpreting the meaning of written phrases in the English language.  You see, by accident I had left my pyjamas in my suitcase back in Dar es Salaam.  And the two bedroom suit turned out to be a two-bed room suite.  

I slept in a bed 6 inches away from someone I barely knew in my swimsuit that night.
