Lord of the Flies?
It’s a beautiful summer’s day and two ladies are lunching al fresco on the patio. Everything is going swimmingly save for the insects that buzz around trying to catch a meal – or lay an egg.
It’s a slow shift. I am inside deeply engrossed in a book. The ladies rap on the window and beckon me with a finger to come outside. I am perturbed. I was getting to the good part.
“Yes ladies?” I inquire.
“Waiter please do something about these files.”
They are dining outside remember.
“I am sorry ladies but my powers of divinity have been suspended indefinitely.”
I go back inside to my book. You dine al fresco you takes your chances.
