I complied with the kidnappers request and I was waiting outside my house at 11:50 on the dot. Brett kept trying to convince me that the unmarked vehichle I was waiting for, was actually the bus. Ha. Ha. Ha.
Hilda pulled up at around noon, with some astonishing news! The kidnappers had contacted her. They had instructed her to have me blindfolded and driven to a secret location immediately. I couldn't stop laughing.
Once in the vehicle, Hilda and I chatted like the old friends that we are. When all of a sudden, she burst out laughing. Apparently, people were staring at me. And laughing. I was blindfolded, remember?
She described several things to me along the way, a car which had crashed into a tree on the boulevard, some girls with shiny pom poms and a sign for a car wash and a bunch of naked people (were you serious about this one???) .
