The phone call was from Mrs Bxxx. Mrs Bxxx is a lovely lady who has hosted for many years and you can’t get much past her with regard to student’s behaviour. In fact I would venture further to say that Wars have been won and lost with people like Mrs B in control of Troops. But I digress….
Anyway the reason for her call was that, as she put it, ” she was in a bit of a state…” I wondered what the reason could be and I could hear that she was labouring her breath when the story unfolded. I sat down and knew this could be a story to beat all stories.
Apparently she had gone to the Linen Drawer where she always keeps her clean pillowcases and was about to put the clean ones in when a little face popped up at her. She said she immediately screamed loud enough to raise the dead from their graves and dropped all of the pillow cases into such a heap that they would have to be ironed again. I was still no wiser as to the situation and began to list the many other things I could be doing when she continued her story. Somewhere between laying down the pillow cases in her linen drawer and her about to close it tight, a little face popped up to say ” hello”
When I say ” little face” I am NOT talking about a student. No, I am talking about a Gerbil. Somewhere between the students arriving and going into Brighton one or both of them had purchased a Gerbil and made it a super nest in the Linen drawer of Mrs Bxxx. And not just any pillow case, I’ll have you know, dear readers, but apparently some with an extremely high thread count which means that not only will they mark quite easily but also crumple without a care in the world, notwthstanding that Mrs B had actually just ironed them to within an inch of their lives! Oh, and don’t get her started on the starch. Yes, she had starched them as well….
