Part 2 - Performance Review Time at the Palace
[takes long invigorating slurp of coffee]
[solemn knocking at door]
Ah, Walt. Come on in and sit yourself down.
Thank you ma’am.
It’s that time of year again, annual review of your performance.
First of all, did you have a nice time in Los Angeles?
Yes, thank you ma’am. I have also downloaded lots of photos for you.
How nice. Our Lady spoke very highly of your services, apparently she was very pleased with your efforts.
I aim to please, ma’am
[cough] hmm – so she led me to believe. Anyway, your performance this year has been very impressive.
[colours slightly] thank you ma’am
You were positively diffident and virtually 2-dimensional before my blogparty. But with all the to-ing and fro-ing you seemed to blossom and afterwards became a new person.
Although I did notice a preference for serving my female guests, any particular reason?
Well, ma’am, Clara seemed to have the men well in hand…….
[chokes back snigger] Yes, well, since then you have served me well and also have done sterling service overseas.
Did you know Clara is pregnant?
[very long pause]
[to be continued]
cor, this is like Days of Our Lives, isn’t it??? Who is the father? Is Clara fibbing? Is Walt lying? What am I going to do with this situation? Tune in tomorrow for the next instalment!
