The problem wasn’t that Nessie had forgotten his keys (again). The problem was that Alistair, Nessie’s roommate, was such a sound sleeper. Usually, this was a good thing, because Alistair could sleep through Nessie’s alarm clock (Nessie hit the snooze button at least four times every morning), and he didn’t mind when the TV was on late at night. However, in times like these, when Alistair wasn’t responding to the constant pounding on the door or the ring of his cell phone, Nessie would have gladly traded him for a less well-rested roommate. It looked like Nessie was going to have to sleep in the hallway (again).
