It was high time that I checked into a motel. I had been sleeping soundly for nearly an hour and a half when I was to be awakened by the sound of snoring. Having checked in alone, you can imagine my surprise, for in the bed next to me was a man who had fallen asleep…FULLY CLOTHED.
I got out of my bed and walked to the foot of his. His shirt, shoes, pants…his belt was pulled tight, confining him. I couldn't bear it, so I proceeded to remove his shoes, revealing, to my surprise, the GREY DOSSIER. I was not fearful. On the contrary; he needed help and by God that's what I gave him.
I reached for the complimentary bucket of ice on the bureau, and in pouring the ice on the stagnant dress socks a sudden steam began to rise. I took several steps backward, for it was at that point that I began to feel nervous.
