2620. This morning’s coffee

Adriana’s main room was an open kitchen, sitting room, dining room. When she got up in the morning, in the dark, to make a coffee, she would turn on the light over the dining table. To turn the fluorescent kitchen light on was far too bright. It would be a rude awakening, especially before the first sip of morning coffee. The light over the dining table was softer; a dull, warm light.

On this particular morning Adriana groped her way towards the light switch as she usually did. She turned on the light. There was someone sitting in an armchair. Adriana screamed. The person did not move. Adriana tentatively approached. The person was dead.

Adriana phoned the police. Apparently the person was some sort of uncover agent so no matter how hard the author of this tale has tried, the person’s identity and why they were there remains a mystery. I apologise.

P.S. I MAY be away for several days as I have piles of work and little sight!!

      I was told by the optometrist that if I paid for an appointment with a specialist then you can get bumped up the waiting list pretty fast (that is to get the free govt. operation). She said it was only $120 and worked wonders. So I did that and the reception when I went to pay said, “That’ll be 360 dollars please” (this for 10 minutes!). I didn’t blink an eye!

        Oh my dog! They do like their money, those specialists. So, do you have a theatre date now. And do you have formal garb for this momentous occasion?

        It makes me cranky when I hear about this sort of thing happening. I mean that you are forced into a bit of bribery to get attention. Grrr.

      I knew you’d been out of town so welcome back – just in time for a Cosby posting – I haven’t looked on your site as yet but I presume you will! Regarding health – when health care is free you await your turn!!! That’s the part they don’t tell you about.

    Adriana was seeing things perhaps. Like still sleep walking or suffering from schizophrenia. For instance, I woke up this morning still thinking my dream was true and then realised ‘it was a dream, only a dream’ to quote a Neil Young song.
