The Day We Almost Missed Our Best Friends' Wedding


There are so many interesting things that happen in our lifetime and this is one of those that we just cannot forget. A good friend of us was getting married in Chicago and he had invited us personally to attend the same. Both of us were very excited as this gave us an opportunity to get to see Chicago and the surrounding places. We planned out travel well in advance and just couldn’t control the excitement. We landed in Chicago a week before the wedding as we had planned to make a tour around the place before the wedding date and be back in town on that day.
As per our plan, we started visiting places in Chicago. First, we went to the Chicago cultural centre, then to the pulmonary point, Osaka Garden, Montrose Harbour, The Art Institute, Garfield Park Conservatory, saw Miro’s sculpture, Harold Washington Library, Caldwell Lily Pool, North Park Nature Centre, Contemporary art museum, Lincoln Park, Osterman Beach and the Mexican Art Museum. This took us five days to complete the schedule. The only thing to be experienced was the Chicago water taxi which we decided to take on the morning of the wedding.
The D day arrived. We got ready by about 10 am and were prepared to go for the water taxi ride. We got into the cab and only then found out that I had missed my wallet in the guest house and went to pick it up. This was when I realised that we had left the keys inside and locked the door. I did not panic and went into the reception to ask them for the spare key. 
To my amusement they did not have any spare and told me that they had only one key and that was the one inside the house. I started to panic as we had to leave immediately and also have to come back and get ready for the wedding. The receptionist calmed me down and told me that she would have a locksmith to help. The locksmith arrived within an hour and the door was open. Thanks to the experience and the efficiency of your locksmith that we were able to attend the wedding on time.
