Most annoyed this morning that newspaper altogether absent from delivery. Have had displeased words on number of occasions with paper boy as to timeliness of appearance, but this time has not turned up at all.
Mrs Payne offered her magazine, said it was terribly interesting. Said it was awfully kind of her, but would rather read cereal packet than magazine whose cover story read,
"My Husband is a Werewolf".
Was told this story highly factual and of utmost credibility.
Sighed as Mrs Payne carefully read cereal packet. Said she didn't see what all the fuss was about.
In any event now have inconvenience of trip to newspaper shop to complain about lack of newspaper. This most annoying as boss is coming around this morning. All the same, certainly have time before boss arrives, and will look like I've been dutifully working all morning.
