It’s May 25th. Do you know where your towel is? …
*WARNING. This post may make no sense if you are not familiar with Douglas Adams and his book, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
*Also, if you are familiar with his work, it still may make no sense. 😀
11am. Wednesday May 25th, 2016.
Marcy and Cynthia are bickering over who gets to sit in the big comfy chair.
Marcy: No. I’m not moving.
Cynthia: But I’m the person. I should get to sit in my chair. It’s a person chair.
Just then Penelope Kitten enters with a giant pink and polka dotted towel.
She grabs her keys, a flashlight, and her stuffed mouse.
She heads out the front door.
Cynthia: Hey! P! Where do you think you’re going?
penelope kitten (squeaking): the restaurant.
Cynthia: Which restaurant?
penelope kitten: at the end of the universe.
Cynthia (gasping): Oh no. I forgot. Today is May 25th – the day we celebrate Douglas Adams and his awesome sci-fi trilogy (in five parts). Today is… Towel Day!
Marcy: Towel Day?
Cynthia: Yes! Remember last time? When we took our towels hitchhiking and had tea with The Ruler Of The Universe and his cat, The Lord? And helped Marvin, the Paranoid Android valet park some spaceships?
Marcy: Yeah! And we ran into those stupid Vogons. Forget it. I’m staying here. On my comfy chair.
Cynthia (panicking): WHERE ARE OUR TOWELS?!
penelope kitten: don’t panic!
Cynthia: BUT I AM PANICKING! WE HAVE NO TOWELS! WHERE ARE OUR TOWELS?!
Cynthia desperately tears apart the linen closet looking for a towel. She discovers a post-it note.
Cynthia (almost fainting): Who let Zaphod Beeblebrox take our towels?
Cut to the comfy chair which is now missing a Marcy.
Just then the doorbell rings It’s the UPS person delivering … cat towels!
Marcy: Finally! I’ve been waiting for these all morning! Ok. We’re all good. Let’s go!
Marcy, Cynthia, and Penelope Kitten race outside – thumb and paws held high – clutching their towels -and hitchhiking to The Restaurant at the End of the Universe!
Marcy: So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish…tacos.
penelope kitten (squeaking): we ended up at the wrong restaurant.
Cynthia: Be back in a few days!
