Oh frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!
Imagine her surprise when the driver of the vehicle which eventually arrived
- noticed her ladyship's handsome walking stick and, reasoning that her mobility must be impaired, offered to bring the omnibus closer to the kerb; and
- waited until she was seated before driving away.
Lady Bracknell has been a regular omnibus passenger in Liverpool (which was once - and may yet be again - a fair city but which is currently a landscape of mingled rubble and cranes) for well over a decade, and this is the first and only occasion on which an omnibus driver has displayed the slightest consideration for her enfeebled state. Lady Bracknell made sure to thank the driver warmly when she alighted.
This is indeed a cause for celebration, and the editor has been instructed to pop open a bottle of virtual Moet & Chandon the moment her duties as an amanuensis are completed for the night.
In other news...
- Lady Bracknell feels that she should offer some level of sympathy to those persons who were directed to her blog via searches for, "dominatrix in Bracknell" and, "lady canes couple". She suspects her humble blog will have come as a crushing disappointment to them.
- Lady Bracknell is not in the habit of linking directly to the posts the editor has written under her employer's name for the BBC Ouch weblog, but will make an exception in this case. She has also arranged for a link to the Free Wheelchair Mission to be permanently installed on the sidebar of this blog. Readers wishing to donate funds sufficient to supply a wheelchair for an impoverished disabled person in a third world country may do so easily via this link.
