I thought that I would present a challenge to all of you who are reading my blog to identify the item in the photo's I have attached........I would like all of you to post your "guess" as a comment.....
The first person who successfully identifies the item wins.......one of these and a special something or other to be carried back 13,000 miles when I return to Texas in August.....
For those of you who are out of town, and who may guess correctly, I will figure out a way to get your special prizes to you.
Now......this blog entry would not be complete without the amusing story that surrounds how I discovered what these are.
Last Monday, I traveled back to Visakhapatam (Vizag) with Sonya, our Director of HR, to conduct interviews to select all of the Management Staff for the Doubletree.....the day did not start off well to say the least......I had set the alarm on my phone to wake me at 3:30am so I could leave at 4:00am for the airport......well the alarm didn't go off and I woke up at 4:30.....had to shower and finish packing and get to the airport for a 5:55 flight. I rushed, didn't forget anything, and called Linda on the way to the airport....my skillful driver, Ramesh, managed to get me there on time....don't ask how! We landed in Vizag and went straight to the hotel we were staying at........which is where I came into contact with (the mystery item)! I picked it up and was trying to guess what it was, and then got busy and forgot that I stuck it in my pocket. I discovered it later in the day when I put my hand in my pocket and got the chance to ask what it was to Sonya and Shoeb (the GM at the Doubltree)......when I asked them.....they told me and were both laughing hysterically that I had it in my pocket and didn't know what it was.
There you go....the only hints I can share!
The "odds makers" have Woody and Katie as the most likely to provide the correct answer!
