Thursdays with Coco -- Magic Flags

Recently, I spent a few days at a resort, and interspersed among the beach chairs at this resort were several small flags. I discovered that if I raised one of these flags (using a rather simple pulley mechanism), a pretty girl would appear bearing a small tray and a pad of paper, and she would proceed to ask if there was anything I needed.

Just before my departure, I stopped in at the hotel gift shop to discover if they had any of these flags for sale – they replied, no.

Would anybody know where I might be able to obtain one of these magic flags?

You can order the kit from Shaklee.

However, the "girl" accessory is rather expensive.

If you do decide to invest in the "girl" part, make sure you do some research prior to making any kind of committment.

Hi Cocoa no gogo,
Have you managed to obtain some of those magic flags yet? You probably could’ve gotten the same results by shouting out “hey you, madam”, although that approach is a bit tacky. Were you planning on trying the flag routine on your wife?

Pardon me for mentioning this, but you appear to be a bit pale in this photo taken at the seashore. It’s a shame you couldn’t have stayed a bit longer and picked up a healthy looking tan.

LBOK: Medical research?

ML: For my wife, I have a little bell which she frequently ignores.

If you saw my flag raised would you come running?

Concerning my complexion: I believe I had obtained quite a healthy tan in that picture. You should have seen me several days prior.
