Detailed Synopsis Edit
After spending a whole day with Grace and Gammie, Margaret Tate decided to take a shower. After her shower, Margaret Tate realized that there were no towels in the bathroom. Margaret Tate looked around in the bathroom for a towel, but she could only find a small loofah. At that moment, Andrew Paxton entered the room, listening to music with earphones.
Upon hearing footsteps outside of the bathroom, Margaret Tate wondered if there was someone outside of the bathroom. As a result, Margaret Tate started to ask if anyone was there, but because Andrew Paxton was listening to music through his earphones, Andrew Paxton did not hear Margaret Tate's voice at all.
Unable to get any response from whoever was outside of the bathroom, Margaret Tate opened the bathroom door partially to look outside the bathroom. However, Andrew Paxton walked out to the balcony to undress at the moment Margaret Tate opened the bathroom door. As a result, Margaret Tate thought that she was alone in the room. While looking outside the bathroom, Margaret Tate found the towels that were kept in the linen closet. Despite being a house guest, Margaret Tate casually walked out of the bathroom naked as a jaybird without thinking that she may possibly be seen naked by another person.
When Margaret Tate emerged from the bathroom to retrieve her towel from the linen closet, she was pestered by the Paxton family's dog, Kevin. This forced the naked executive editor-in-chief of Colden Books to retreat back into the bathroom. Margaret Tate tried to get pass Kevin, but she was unsuccessful as Kevin was not willing to let Margaret Tate get pass it at all. After several unsuccessful attempts to get pass Kevin, the executive editor-in-chief of Colden Books started to become very frustrated and angry.
Unable to get pass Kevin, the naked executive editor-in-chief of Colden Books decided to just sit down on the edge of the bath tub and apologize to Kevin for attempting to feed it to the eagle earlier that day. However, the executive editor-in-chief of Colden Books was very unlucky because Kevin did not understand a single word from Margaret Tate. As a result, Kevin ignored every apology from Margaret Tate and proceeded to continue barking at Margaret Tate.
With every apology not working, the executive editor-in-chief of Colden Books had had enough. Margaret Tate got up and looked around for something she could use to get Kevin to move out of her way. In the end, Margaret Tate grabbed a hair dryer in the bathroom and used it to attack Kevin in an attempt to get Kevin to move out of her way, so that she could finally grab a towel from the linen closet. Unfortunately for Margaret Tate, like her previous attempt of getting Kevin to move away, the use of the hair dryer was a failure because Kevin got comfortable with the wind from the hair dryer instead.
With that attempt being unsuccessful at getting Kevin to move out of Margaret Tate's way, the executive editor-in-chief of Colden Books decided to move Kevin out of her way by force. Margaret Tate proceeded to put down the hair dryer and grabbed the bathroom floor mat.
The executive editor-in-chief of Colden Books placed the bathroom floor mat in front of Kevin and tried her very best to somehow get Kevin to step on the bathroom floor mat. When Kevin finally stepped onto the bathroom floor mat after many unsuccessful attempts from Margaret Tate to get Kevin to move out of the way, Margaret Tate grabbed the bathroom floor mat, pulled it along with Kevin deeper into the bathroom, and moved as quickly as she could. Kevin tried to chase after Margaret Tate, but the executive editor-in-chief of Colden Books was able to close the door behind her, trapping Kevin in the bathroom.
When the executive editor-in-chief of Colden Books was finally outside of the bathroom and free from Kevin's pesters, the executive editor-in-chief of Colden Books, naked as the day she was born, ran as quickly as she could to retrieve a towel from the linen closet. However, Margaret Tate was too late because her secretary, Andrew Paxton, had already entered the room.
Like Margaret Tate's previous rash decision of committing fraud at the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, Margaret Tate's impetuous behavior had once again led her to a difficult situation. Only this time, Margaret Tate's rash decision of emerging from the bathroom completely naked to grab a towel from the linen closet led her to an embarrassing situation of not wearing a single stitch of clothing in front of her secretary, Andrew Paxton.
Margaret Tate was deeply mortified. Never in her life would she had thought that one day her secretary would see her, the executive editor-in-chief of Colden Books, wearing her birthday suit instead of her customized black power suit. Afraid of being seen naked, the naked executive editor-in-chief of Colden Books covered herself up with just her hands. She sternly demanded her secretary to not look at her and moved away from her secretary's sight as quickly as she could.
Fortunately, Margaret Tate was able to move away from Andrew Paxton's sight really quickly and was also able to find a towel to cover herself. After an exchange of words between Margaret Tate and Andrew Paxton, Andrew Paxton walked into the bathroom to take a shower while Margaret Tate slammed her face into the bed, regretting her rash decision that led her end up stark naked in front of her secretary.
