MISSION: Park, Treat, and Eat

I have a sweet tooth.  And not just any sweet tooth.  A serious, professional, I-should-get-paid-to-eat-as-much-sugar-as-I-do sweet tooth.  It's amazing that my teeth haven't rotted out of my head.  But it explains why I have an arsenal of tooth-cleaning supplies at my apartment.  

For the very reason I love treats, I love this mission from Affiliated Agent A in Fayetteville, Arkansas. It's just plain sweet.

Date: Tuesday, 14 September 2010

Location: Harmon Avenue Parking Garage; University of Arkansas; Fayetteville, Arkansas

Time: 4 p.m.

Let's see how Affiliated Agent A's first mission went!

I spend a lot of time at the University of Arkansas so many of my missions will probably be on campus.  I won’t say whether I work there, teach there, am a student there, or just really LOVE the Razorbacks.   I wanted to leave someone a little treat on his/her vehicle and since it was rainy and overcast in Fayetteville, the garage seemed like a perfect place.  Also this garage is where I park when I am running late in the morning (that’s been happening a lot recently for me).  And since this was my first mission, I thought the garage would be a good place to be covert and to gain confidence. 

I was armed with a card, a package of Baskin Robbins hard candy and a box of Cracker Jacks.  

At first I intended to leave this on a car parked close to mine, but there was someone nearby who got into a vehicle and just sat for awhile.  I stalled as long as I could, slowly placing one-by-one my umbrella, lunch bag and attaché into my car, hoping that the person would leave soon.  I decided to drive around the garage and find another car.  I drove up one level and parked in between two cars at the far end of the garage - a later model BMW and an older Toyota just like mine except a different color!   The Toyota had to be the one.  There was not a university sticker on the car so I wasn’t sure if it was a staff member, faculty member or a student.  It probably was a visitor.  There wasn’t anyone around.  I placed everything on the front windshield and snapped a few pictures. 

This was so much fun.  I can't wait to do another one soon!

I can't wait to see what you do, Affiliated Agent A.  This was so sweet!  (Okay, pun intended!)
