The international potted plant incident

I may or may not have been involved in an international incident involving a potted plant* and a Dutch hotel. If I had been involved, it would have been purely accidental.

This alleged incident may or may not have involved accidentally knocking down the poorly placed plant in the lightweight, inappropriate, and dangerous plastic pot when trying to access the hotel. The incident might have also involved much horribly embarrassed giggling and desperate attempts to right the plant and to scoop up all of the potting material, all the time mindful of the incriminating security camera.

Things may or may not have been worsened when the perpetrators returned to the scene later to find a group of men in work pants standing around and talking in the hallway. An additional man was wearing lederhosen (shorts), which was extremely odd since it was not in Germany. The alleged perpetrators may have burst into uncontrolled laughter that might have made the men self-conscious even though the laughter was about the plant and the small amount of potting material left next to the plant and not about the men.

All of this may or may not have happened.

And then I may or may not have dreamed that night that I was in class and there was a pile of potting material under the desk. It may or may not have been the result of a guilty conscience.

*and by plant, I mean a houseplant that is legal in all countries, just to be clear.
