Just like proper soldiers all in a row

This behaviour's actually disturbing...

T.Aldous has come in to tidy his office and has just spent half an hour rearranging the cutlery drawer in the staff room.

Just like Mary's, T.Aldous' retirement is dragging on with all the signs of can't-let-go-itis. Unlike Mary, who retired properly when she finally, eventually, actually retired, T.Aldous just cannot realise the moment has passed. It's taking on elements of low tragedy and it is a great pity.

That bloody Mary and her trend setting way that she has about herself.

Where will it all end?

Jimmy, I grow convinced it never will...

Pat said...

Poor man! Has he any family? A wife?

Rearranging cutlery, eh? Not for the first time T.Aldous makes me think of J. Alfred Prufrock.

What do'you mean, it's sad. I rearrange my cutlery drawer all the time.
Oh, god. I must be really really boring. x

'His office'??
Shouldn't it be somebody else's office by now?

Kevin Musgrove said...

Pat: he is married.

Gadjo: mmm...

Ladybird World mum: yes, but other people's cutlery, that's really obsessive!

Kaz: in our dreams...
