Time Stre-e-e-e-tched

I arrived early for a meeting this arvo but luckily I always come prepared so while I waited for everyone else I whipped out my book and got to reading. Presently the woman running the meeting appeared and we introduced ourselves and she noticed the book and asked me what I was reading. I told her the name of the novel.

She said, "I'm reading a fabulous book at the moment. So engrossing. Just fascinating."

"Oh, what is it?"

"Managing With Carrots."


"Managing With Carrots. It's wonderful. All about how to motivate and reward your staff. Really juicy stuff - excellent bed-time reading."

I suspected at that moment it was going to be one of those kinds of meetings. And I was right.

Reminds me of a flatmate I had who claimed she roolly roolly liked to read but couldn't find anything on my bookshelves because there wasn't any self-help.

She didn't stay long.
