Early Riser

scan0001.jpgI shared this tale with fellow blogger Shortfellow about five or six months back, but I decided I would post it for your reading pleasue.

A few years back I went to Nashville to visit a friend in the publishing business.  With $55.00 in my pocket, I headed east in my little Chevette and arrived at a motel outside Nashville about thirteen hours later.  I chose this particular motel because [being the conservative I am] the sign next to the highway read “$10.75 tax incl.”  The next morning I arose at my usual time, about 3:00 a.m., and sat around and read until about 7:30 when I decided to go to the Country Music Hall of Fame and look things over.  When I arrived at the shrine of Country Music, around 8:00 a.m., I thought, “How strange!  No one is here to see this magnificent ediface.”  I entered the building and toured the facility, sat through two or three music videos, and visited the gift shop [where I wanted to purchase several items — but no one was there to take my money].  About 9:45 I decided it was time to leave and make preparations for my appointment which would be in a couple of hours.  As I reached the front door I was surprised to see a very long line of people standing outside the door.  Then, I noticed the sign…”Open 10:00 a.m.”  Nervous and fearfull of arrest, the only thing I could think of was to pose as a janitor [which I did].  As I passed the crowd I welcomed all the visitors to Nashville, and told the waiting crowd, “The Hall of Fame will be opening in just a few minutes.”
