CHRIS : I was in the tote earlier .
I look up from the book I'm reading , wait patiently ……
CHRIS : … without Joey …
ME : Okaaaay . (I know there's more coming … know the signs …)
CHRIS : He pitched up . Voice raised . Loud as ever .
ME : Okaaaay . (Getting interesting , never a dull moment with these two)
CHRIS : Found me there – without him !
ME : Uh oh ! (I smell trouble brewing .)
CHRIS : Telling everyone who will listen , how he had to catch a kombi to the tote .
ME : (lapse into silent mode … it's best …)
CHRIS : He's proclaiming loudly for the entire world to hear , hands thrown dramatically into the air … "When days are dark , friends are few !" And gesticulating wildly …
For those of you who don't know Joey , I refer you to the earlier blog postings ( http://writer-in-transit.co.za/chris-j-t-oddballs/ and http://writer-in-transit.co.za/b/ ) Read them carefully , and then you'll have an idea of what you're dealing with !
Meanwhile … I sit back … arms folded … wait for the story …
SINCE THIS WILL TAKE MUCH LONGER THAN I THOUGHT ~ YOU'LL HAVE TO CATCH PART II LATER THIS EVENING !!
