Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary, should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf.
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day

Mrs Monk’s Would-Be Diary .........

Workers and Beggars On The Road posted 20 March 2009

A bleary jet lagged stay at Airport hotel and two junk food meals washed down with Guinness, and we made our way west to the Gulf Coast of Florida, a short journey made long by required shopping fix, to keep Mrs Monk content, with new stock of corporate tee shirts. My mission was to replace my 3 year old tennis shoes which were losing the will to live.

Having sorted out my shoes the sales girl offered me another pair at half price. I told her that I only need a new pair every three years.  She accepted my decision but at that moment Mrs Monk arrived and decided that she could also use  a pair of shoes.  Mrs Monk is a sales clerk’s dream customer because she only says ”yes” and then disappears, leaving me to pay for two pairs of shoes instead of one. But then I received another offer from the sales clerk, of a further attractive discount if I buy a third pair of shoes.  I looked at the girl and gave her the look of incredulity which she took to be a “no” but within a heartbeat she asked me if I would like some shoe polish. 

“For tennis shoes?”  I asked.

She looked away and did not say another word, as if I never existed. She had the personalty of a cabbage. No offence to brassicas.
