Down the Tube VI

Years ago I worked in a bank and the manager retired. We had to have two cocktail parties, one for the staff and colleagues and the other was for customers and the staff came too. When the new manager arrived we did the same again. I was younger then and had more than my fair share of dry martini and champagne. They had caterers who bought in the most delicious looking canap├ęs. They weren’t delicious at all, they were filled with a kind of sludgy mixture of various shades and quite tasteless. I think that the only reason they got eaten was because we were all drinking far too much and didn’t care.

The food I receive in this place is the same stuff I am sure. I eat when I’m hungry because I am hungry and that’s all. Oh if I could have just one juicy, crisp apple…

For me it is the contrary. In the last few weeks we had a lot of parties for my leaving boss. The food was always simple, but excellent. Martini's and Champagne was however missing. And Sprite and Coca Cola did not make us boozed.

I think that now I'm older I'd prefer things to be your way around, though a little champagne would not be refused.

I am in danger here of keeling over with all the donuts.. :-)

A nice plate of carrots, celery, and dip wouldn't go amiss.

Donna: That's kind of you!

Alan: We can always live in hope.

Chandira: There was a doughnut promotion when I went shopping yesterday morning - so tempting...
