Flash and dash

A Shoosmiths partner found himself blushing during the firm’s recent partner retreat in Spain. Having had his fill of good cheer earlier in the night, the wayward partner awoke to answer a call from nature. But in his bleary-eyed state he made a rather crucial wrong turn and found himself standing in the hallway, locked out of his room, in only his birthday suit.

Desperate to cover his embarrassment he grabbed the nearest object – a bowl of potpourri. Tulkinghorn is told he made quite a sight dashing downstairs to reception to ask for another key.
