No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t compose the first line of my press release. However, help would soon be at hand with the arrival of NP (in a beautiful filmy lemon dress) and ED (visiting from London).
NP’s outfit matched the colour of the supply of bottled cocktails that I brought to the party, so I passed one over to her. At the same time, she snatched my work away from me. At first I thought that this was an offer to complete it. Instead, she put aside – out of my reach – in favour of partying.
When my niece AMF arrived, I tried to interest her in finishing off my press release, but she was of the same opinion of NP and ED. This was a celebration and not a work event.
