J and I have just completed our third swim for October. It was such a lovely day today at Hataitai Beach and we spent a long time in the water, then we had a lovely picnic lunch sitting on the deck after our swim. Oh boy, summer is on its way.
While we were chomping away happily, a woman (Sarah Free)came to us on the deck and started electioneering. Can't make up my mind to vote for her in the coming Wellington City Council elections because she had the gumption to approach us, or be upset that she disturbed me as I was savouring J's scrumptious marshmallow cake. A guy wandered onto the deck but neither he, nor J and her beloved chauffeur, were actually in Sara Free's electorate. I was in it, so she concentrated on me.
After a dramatic showing of the bruise on my leg and an equally dramatic rendering of "The day I stepped into the hole on the deck", Sara Free promised to report the hole to somebody or other. We'll have to wait and see. As I type this, it's now been 10 days, three phone calls, and one email since I reported My Spectacular Accident to the Wellington City Council.
Oh yes, sigh, J still goes into her giggling hysterically routine if she so much as even thinks about my-falling-down-the-hole-in-the-deck episode. I believe she's told everyone she comes in contact with, but freely admits the tale takes a long time in the telling because she's laughing so much.
Honestly, some people.....
