It happened.

Waking up this morning, I called the health center to make an appointment... They made the appointment however, right during one of my classes so I skipped class, and headed right over...

Upon arrival back to my room: I decided to crawl into bed and "rest" for a few moments.

An hour later... I was still resting.

That's when I decided that I was going to make an active effort to get ready for the day because I had a meeting to head off to later on in the afternoon.

I took a nice relaxing shower and ventured into my room to assemble my outfit for the day, hours after the typical person may have found this journey to their wardrobe. It was nearly 11:00 in the morning. (This may seem peculiar to the outsider, but I am convinced it's considered acceptable on the college campus.)

ANYWAYS that's when it happened.

I got a knock at my door. And the dialogue went something like this:

wardrobe: Victoria: in a white bathrobe with a towel placed neatly on her head appearing to still be wet from previously mentioned shower.
Jillian: in a typical fall jacket with scarf loosely placed around the neck and college student ambassador name tag placed upon the collar.

Jillian: "Hello! It's Jillian!"

Me: "Oh hey Jillian come on in!"

Jillian: Oh! I have a tour here to show your room!

Me: *fumbling with clothes and ripping off towel that was placed on my head* "Oh no! Uh, I just got out of the shower... Uh... Oh man.

Jillian: Do you need a few minutes?

Me: Oh yes please. *please go away and go to another room and let me crawl back into the warmth of my sheets*

Jillian continues on a conversation outside my room, about bathrooms and dorm life buying me some time.
Me: *opening the door now dressed in a t-shirt and sweatpants but still apparently wet from shower as previously mentioned lacking glasses or corrective eye wear* Hello! Welcome! Here is my room! I am so sorry! Today is just an off day...
*scurries to the hallway that the students have been in hoping to avoid another awkward encounter with the students!*

Jillian: Sorry! Usually her room is much cleaner than this!

And as they exited I had one last extremely AWKWARD encounter with the tour students!

Folks, here at Roberts, we offer lots of services however, this is not one that is usually frowned upon!
What a day!
