Village Life!


“It’s a nice morning.”
    “Is it?”
    “It will be nice again tomorrow.”
    “Will it?”
    “What’s up with you this morning?”
    “Look at them, people enjoying themselves!”
    “What’s wrong with that?”
    “People promenading about the
place. Messing about in boats.”
    “A boat!”
    “Look at those two splashing about in the water, the old ex-Admiral and No.1 about to go sailing plastic boats in the free sea, talk about second childhood!”
    “What is wrong with you, don’t you like seeing people enjoying themselves?”
    “Yes, but when do we get the chance? Whenever do we have a day off?”
    “We are Top Hat officials of Administration, we have a duty to these citizens.”
    “They’ll be on the beach later, sunbathing, playing beach ball and paddling in the water!”
    “Go on then.”
    “Go on what?”
    “We’ve got a few minutes before we’re due at the Town Hall, take off your shoes and socks, roll up your trousers and have a paddle in the free sea.”
    “Don’t be daft.”
    “I’m not, go on if you feel like a paddle.”
    “What would the Observers think?”
    “Let them think what they like.”
    “They would report me.”
    “So what?”
    “I’d be posted as unmutual!”
    “How terrible!”
    “I’d lose my position!”
    “Look on the brightside.”
    “Brightside?”
    “You’d have plenty of spare time to enjoy yourself!”

Be seeing you
