I love Victorian and Edwardian literature. I think this might be why I was so amused by something that occured at work. To wit:

My colleagues wanted to keep the key to the ladies' room in the lock so the facilities would be readily accessible, but soon hordes of strangers began taking the elevator up to our floor to use our private restroom. So we found a place to hide the key just outside the ladies' room door.

After that, all was well. Recently, however, someone placed a lovely potted palm in front of the hiding place. That cracked me up, but no one else in our office could understand why I was laughing.

So...is there anyone out there who thinks hiding a key behind a potted palm is about as unsubtle as you can you get (except, apparently, here in Southern California)?

Might as well hang a neon sign "Here it is!"
