Sid Shovel, Private Eye
When she undulates into my office my eyes decide to pop out, just to get nearer to her.
This dame has a body that can stop an express train going down a mountain so, when she sits and crosses her long, slender, nylon-clad legs, I imagine everything from our first date to the grandchildren visiting, with a few pretty memorable highlights included, by the time she finishes.
She puts a cheque on my desk, the number of zeroes reminding me of my favourite football team’s recent goal-scoring record.
Then she starts to talk, explaining her problem in minute detail and at great length.
When she eventually stops, she studies me for a few moments before asking what I think.
I blink at her a few times, shake my head rapidly from side to side, and tell her ‘I’m sorry, I was a bit distracted, I really wasn’t listening.’
