….we’ve been waiting for you. Well, not exactly. I don’t receive a lot of visitors at my place. For one, my place isn’t big so there isn’t a lot of room for entertaining and it takes a bit of effort to get to where I live. With that said, I was surprised when there was a loud knock at my door two days ago. I peered through the peep hole and saw a guy about 5’8″ with a red beard standing at my door. Not knowing the individual, I opened the door. This then ensued:
Awkward silence that lasts about three seconds.
Red Beard stares straight ahead at me with a very intense stare. I actually feel a little uneasy.
Red Beard: Ummm…
Me: Can I help you?
Suddenly, another individual turns into the doorway…and looks JUST LIKE Red Beard. They must be twins. Literally. Let’s refer to this fine fellow, also equipped with a red beard, as “Red Beard #2.” Are we all in agreement? Great.
Oh, I almost forgot. Red Beard #2 is carrying an armful of board games. This guy would make the CEO of Hasbro smile. I’m talking like six to seven games, which I immediately notice. I’m down for some boards games, maybe I should invite them in. Serial killers don’t carry Jenga, right?
Red Beard #1: (realizing this isn’t whom they expected) Hmm…we are looking for our friend.
Me: Looks like you gentlemen have a fun evening planned.
Red Beard #1: (breaks into a warm smile) Yeah, hmmm…I guess we will try another door.
Me: (Intently focused on the board game collection in Red Beard #2’s arms) Okay.
Red Beard #2 either is not able to speak or doesn’t care to speak but gives myself and Red Beard #1 a very confused look, clearly perplexed that this isn’t his friend’s place and perhaps annoyed that he just lugged a large number of board games up two flights of stairs.
Red Beard #1: Really sorry to bother you. Have a good night!
Me: No problem! You as well.
About 15 seconds pass and I look out my window and notice both Red Beards standing in the parking lot looking at each building perplexed. Red Beard #1 scratches his head. I can only assume Red Beard #2 would have done the same had he not been carrying the entire Parker Brothers inventory in his arms.
Red Beards…do not pass Go and DO NOT collect $200 dollars!
