Village Life!

    “What do you think it’s about this time?”
    “What do you mean?”
    “I’ve never attended a meeting of the Board of Education, I’m a new member.”
    “No I didn’t mean that. Don’t you have the feeling we’ve done this before?”
    “What deja vu you mean?”
    “Well that’s probably because we always walk this way to the Town Hall.”
    “Yes I know that. But we always see the same people.”
    “Same people?”
    “Well we come along that little cobbled path, we turn right just as a taxi drives passed and stops outside the Town Hall, and each time that same couple are walking by.”
    “Well The Village is small enough, you’re bound to keep seeing the same people.”
    “And the taxi?”
    “Well a taxi plying its trade…………”
    “Stopping each time outside the Town Hall?”
    “Obviously someone has business at the Town Hall.”
    “Yes but they never go in….and its always the same two people, and I’ll tell you another thing…….. hello they’re not there today!”
   “Sorry I’m not quite with you old boy.”
   “Well there’s the taxi parked outside the Town Hall, as the two men get out two Top Hat officials of administration go into the Town Hall……”
    “They’re not us are they?”
    “No of course not, only they’re not there today!”
    “Perhaps they’re late, or we’re a few minutes early.”
    “Well everyone else is here, and it doesn’t seem to matter what time of day it is. The scene is always exactly the same!”
   “Except today.”
   “What do you think?”
   “I think if we don’t get a move on we’ll be late for the meeting of the Board of Education, that’s what I think!”

Be seeing you
