A First World Tragedy

Wednesday was rather sad. I had an bus excursion with people from a cruise ship which went very well. They’re clarly people of superior intelligence and taste, because they laughed at all my jokes. They really enjoyed the rum distillery, too. The owner was delighted with the sales and gave me a bottle of toffee rum as a thank you. I love toffee rum!

When I got home I left my bags on the table and went to switch the computer on. There was a CRASH from the kitchen. I went in to find my bag on the floor and toffee rum pouring out of the broken bottle. WAH! So this evening I bought myself a bottle of toffee rum from my tips, and I’m drinking a glass right now.
