The Museum Guard KISSED MY WIFE!

Cairo, Cairo Governorate, Egypt
9 Kudos
Flag
My wife and I visited a Museum in Cairo, which was spectacular! There was many artifacts, famous mummies, and even a King Tut display. There was no photos allowed of this room and there was a guard inside. While I was looking at some of the artifacts, the guard struck up a conversation with my wife. He eventually told her she was very attractive. I walked over to see what was going on and she introduced me as her husband. He picked up one of the antique tools and pretended to stab me. It was very funny. After exploring the room, we told the guard our goodbyes. He reached over and gave her a little smooch. I guess I should watch my back from now on!
