Bliss demolished by aggravation

01 Jul



In just one ring … well more than that actually.  Picture the scene my beloved readers.  You’ve had an exhausting day in the fresh air the day before, you’ve had a yummy supper and have slept comfortably and have woken to some warm sunshine.  In these quiet moments before you spring up to start your day you mentally muse about what you have to do and the order of attack.  Then the phone ring, the peace of the day is shattered and by the end of the short conversation your sanity has been tested and the remains of the day swathed in a general mood of agitation.

The conversation was

“Hello George”             caller ID is invaluable sometimes
“Err.. err.. is everything all right?”
“Yes George”
“Oh right .. did you know your door is locked?”
“Yes George, I have not unlocked it yet.”
Short pause
“Did you want me for something?”
“No no no, so long as everything is all right”
“Yes it is. Bye George”

::shakes-head::  I know he is well meaning, I know he is at a slight loss, I know it comes with his age .. but please ….. just because it looks like I do nothing does not mean I have nothing to do!

    You could of asked George to turn on your oven and cook you lunch. If that didn’t put an end to him you always could of passed him along your copy of Moby Dick……

      LOL – the oven is fixed and operational 🙂

      If I asked him to cook lunch he would do it every darn day.

      I am watching the Wimbo final, the window is open and I know he will open the window further and strike up a convo with me during one of his trips pasted to and fro his shed. Neighbourly is one thig but I am used [and quite like] to be left alone
