alright, this is it my last childhood story.
i hope you all enjoy it.
this will be rather similar to my cute stories (at least that is what most of you tell me they are)
i was going to wait until next week before sharing, but today i just got a phone call about a new job as a butcher, starting MONDAY.
I'm really looking forward to it and i don't think i will get the time to write anything next week so here we go.Mummification Vacation in Bulgaria
this story takes place in early june 1998. i was 8 years and 11 months old.
at the time my mother had let me change hair style so i didn't have the fish bowl shape any longer.
i now had a short spiky hair witch the sun had made blond, blue eyes and a resent scar above my left eye after an accident at school.
me and my parents had went to Bulgaria for a week, all my siblings where so old at the moment that none of them would join us as they had they're jobs deal with.
the hotel we where sleeping over at had this kids club with a bunch of activities so the parents could enjoy some peace and quiet at the beach.
this club was called the dolphin club, and was led by a Swedish woman called Anna. or as we referred to "Dolphin Mama Anna".
most of the tourists at this hotel where Scandinavians so all the kids in the dolphin club where either from Norway, Sweden or Denmark.
how did we communicate?
those 3 countries might be different but we talked almost the same language. to tell you like this the difference between the Swedish, Danish and Norwegian language is kinda the same as the difference between the English in USA, Australia and England.
a few words are different and the accent is far from the same, but that's it.
anyway, everyday in the dolphin club started with Mama Anna giving us the Dolphin medicine (or a piece of candy if you like).
and one day when i came into the Dolphin home, just a regular room in the hotel where we had the meetings, to our surprise someone had STOLEN THE CANDY!!!
"dolphins, this is a huge problem" Anna said in her Swedish accent. "we need our medicine to survey the heat out there"
Anna was a blond woman in her mid twenties, a little short for an adult but still taller than us kids.
also she had an enormous tan thanks to the weather of Bulgaria.
we started to look around for any clues, but to no use.
so Anna told us we should go and check with the woman sitting in the tourist information desk.
when we got there this skinny Norwegian woman with blond hair was sitting behind the desk and reading a magazine.
"can i help you?" she said.
Anna started explaining about the candy gone missing and asked her if she had seen anyone suspicious.
the woman stared a little into to the thin air and seemed to be thinking about if she had seen anything.
"nope, not that i can remember." was her answer to our disappointment "but i'll let you know if i see anything"
we kept searching around the hotel, i remember that i was in the media room with a chubby Danish boy looking together.
"we gotta find that medicine" i said.
"yeah, but it don't seem to be around here"
we regrouped with the others and looked around every corner of the hotel (or at least the main floor).
suddenly Anna told us that we should ask the woman at the information desk again.
we got back and just like before she had nothing better to do than reading a magazine while chewing something.
"have you seen something by now?" Anna asked her.
she was once again looking in to the air and suddenly said "you know what, now that i think about it."
she took her feet of the desk and started to shake her pointing finger a little.
"i actually saw this tall guy with a black jacket who came out of the dolphin home earlier today"
she said while clearly chewing.
suddenly one of the Norwegian girls said "what's that in your mouth?"
the woman seemed a little shocked and said "what do mean?" as she stopped chewing.
then a Swedish girl said "that thing your chewing on... what is it?"
all the kids including me looked at her with angry eyes.
"nothing" she quickly said with a silent and scared voice.
"IT'S THE DOLPHIN MEDICINE, YOU ARE THE THIEF!!!" i shouted out so loud they probably heard me to top floor of the hotel.
"dolphins, search her desk!" Anna ordered us, and we did not hesitate.
"no, don't do that" the woman said "whatever you do do not open that shelf".
one of the Danish kids opened the top shelf behind the desk and found a bag filled with candy.
we all looked at her with a scary look as she said "uh-oh"...
"get her dolphins, let's wrap her to this support pole over her" Mama Anna said as she took out a roll of pink toilet paper from her bag.
we grabbed the womans arms and led her to a big pole in the middle of the entrance hall of the hotel. me and 3 other kids got each a roll of pink toilet paper and started to run around both the woman and the thick cement pole.
4 kids running around at the same time, obviously she was completely mummified in no time.
suddenly the woman was covered from ankles to shoulders with toilet paper.
the only thin she had free was her head, and we could see her shoes sticking out the bottom.
dolphin mama Anna started to walk slowly around her with her arms behind her back
"well, well, well, well, well, so you thought you could get away did ya" Anna said with a strict voice.
"please let me go" the woman said with a theatric voice.
"we should punish her for this" one of the kids said.
"noooo, i'm begging you, please just let me go"
"you gotta promise to never steal our medicine again" Anna said.
"yes, i promise, i'll do anything just let me go"
obviously this was all an act, so of course Anna would deliver the candy to her next week when she had a new group of kids and once again tell them it was stolen. but we didn't know that
"are you sure you have learned your lesson?"
"yes, dolphins are way to smart for me, i will never steal anything from you again"
Anna looked at her with a smile "alright kids, you can free her"
we started to tear off the toilet paper holding her back to the support pole and then we got our candy bag back so we all could have our medicine.
so that's about it, i just shared my last childhood story. i hope you have enjoyed as many of my stories as possible since the day i started writing them 3 years ago.viking has left the building
