A Foiled Surprise

Photo by Opus

While I was at Ruis's surprise birthday party over the weekend I overheard Karl tell him about another surprise he had planned. As the party ended Karl was taking Ruis to an unknown destination for some alone time, just the two of them. I immediately thought it would be a good idea to give Karl a surprise himself and join in on the trip, we always has such a good time when we are all together. I asked Opus, Momo, and Asta if they would like to surprise the guys and join them on the trip? They thought this was a great idea so we then packed ourselves in a suitcase, had it delivered to Karl's place, and instructions for the guys not to open the suitcase until they arrive to their destination . . .

. . .after the party, just as planned we all were on our way, to where we still didn't know but at least we were all together . . .

. . . much to our excitement we found ourselves in Cairo! We had never been there before and we patiently waited for the guys to settle into their room and unpack the suitcase we all were hiding in . . .

. . . much to our surprise the guys were so busy sightseeing that they forgot to unpack the suitcase that we had packed ourselves into . . . finally Karl and Ruis realized that they had never opened it . . . just in time as our food supply had run out . . .

. . . Karl and Ruis bought us some beautiful outfits and, since we were starving, took us out for some good Egyptian food. Over dinner we heard all about all of the things they had done while sight seeing . . . I really have to wonder if somehow Karl knew we were in the suitcase and deliberately didn't open it when they first arrived in Cairo . . . oh so much fun we missed being in the suitcase.

Stop over to Karl's place to see more photos of his trip with Ruis and oick up the souvenir he has for you to take home.

What a great trip! Although your plans for a suitcase vacation were a bit foiled! Thank goodness we were able to keep our paws crossed (if ya know what I mean)!

All is well that ends well!

Sassy, you really must learn to MEOW loudly if you are going to get yourself stuck in things. They would have let me out right away with all the racket I make. Although I have never been in a suitcase before, but I did get locked in a closet. ~Scylla

You guys are too funny. We bet Karl kept you locked in the suitcase on purpose. ~Socks & Charybdis

I think it looked like a great trip--even if you were stuck in a suitcase!

Never mind, what bits that were NOT in the suitcase were quite fun. We have to come out with something different next time.

Oh dear. I wouldn't put it behind Karl to have kept you in there deliberately! Those boys can get pretty touchy when they are here and we don't give them enough privacy!
But you got out in time, and you got really nice outfits and a great dinner! More than we did back home here who got stuck with the cleaning up of the party!!!!

Oh mine, this is a fabulous life of fun!

Well, it is the idea that counts! So sorry you didn't get out of the suitcase sooner. Sometimes things just don't work out like they should -- but gives you better stories to tell later!
