Ski Trip

We got out of the car, stretched out our stiff legs, then proceeded to unload the car. Melody reached for her bag, but I kindly grabbed it for her.

“Allow me.”

“Are you sure?”

“Of course.”

Adriana took this as an open invitation and handed me an even bigger bag than Melody’s, along with some other items until I was completed loaded with luggage and ski gear.

“I think that about does it,” Adriana said, before briskly heading to the entrance as I lumbered across the parking lot. Seeing that I was struggling, Melody took it upon herself to took some of the load off me.

“I’m good,” I stated.

“No reason why I can’t help,” Melody said.

“He can carry it,” Adriana said briskly. “It’s good for him.”

“So can I,” Melody made clear, adding “Are you always this bossy?”


“And you wonder why you’re single?”

“Thanks for the reminder.”

We had already entered the bickering stage of our budding friendship.

As we passed through the door of the lodge, I managed to get Adriana’s skis stuck in the doorframe. I made a spectacle of myself as I tried to get unstuck. Once again, Melody came to my aid.

At the check-out counter, Adriana’s true colors reared their ugly head once again.

“I specifically requested a room with two beds,” Adriana told the clerk, seething with anger.

“I’m sorry, ma’am. But the most we can offer is a single bed,” the clerk said in reply, instantly grabbing my attention.

“That is not what I requested.”

“I understand, but we are fully booked.”

“That’s not my problem.”

Melody and I looked at each other in embarrassment, wishing nothing more than to disassociate ourselves from Queen Adriana at once.

“I’m very sorry. But what would you like me to do? We can’t ask our other guests to leave their room.”

“If they made their reservations after me you can.”

“I’m afraid we can’t do that.”

“I would like to speak to your manager.”

“I am the manager.”

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
