By Invitation Only


The hotel was ready to welcome its important visitor for this Labor Day weekend. For last several years, governor has been a regular visitor here.

The building looked bright in its white paint, matching the sunny day outside. Seating arrangements were made on the long veranda, covered with green carpet and decorated with flowering plants. Balconies, above shaded windows, also had seating arrangements. Driveway was adorned with national flag and decluttered to receive governor’s cavalcade.

Outside on the street, a family of four was out to soak up sunshine. One kid asked,

What is this building dad?”

This is a hotel, son.”

Why is this building all decked up?”

Today, governor is coming for the Labor Day Weekend.

Let us go in, dad.”

No son, entry is strictly by invitation only.”

Meanwhile, Governor and his fleet of cars went in, siren blaring.

Can I be the governor someday, dad?”
