The wrong age for a whippet

We have a firm date for Mary's retirement: "sometime at the end of the month."

"We'll have to arrange a collection," says T.Aldous. "And we'll have to think of something to get her as a retirement present. Whose decision would that be?"

"I suspect it might be yours," replies Maisie in perfect dead-pan.

You could buy her a deep sigh of relief. They are priceless.

Generally, retirement presents are far too good an opportunity for settling old scores to be left to 'management'.

I know someone who's older than I am and she has two. And very stupid they are - knock you over as soon as look at you. Whippets.

Ooh, very cautious that "suspect" and "might", but let's hope that the irony works ;-)

Mme DF: good idea: she may need one before the month's out!

Affer: we're far too nice for that...

Pat: and whippets to you, too, dearie!

Gadjo: nothing short of a thick plank of wood works, but the rest of us enjoy it
