In Their Own Way They’re Happy

William, is that you?

YES. I wish you would let me know when it’s you coming in through the garage.

Well, who else would it be?

Well, with all of these workman around here, you never know, You know how these working class are like.

Now please get ready for dinner quickly, the Dorfmans are coming at 7 pm, and you know how punctual they are. Especially Lillie who “chooses” not to do her own cooking.

Tick tock tick tock.

Hi Honey. William please set the table, quickly. The Dorfmans will be here any minute now.

Yes Honey.

I sure wish you would take me seriously. If you knew, really knew just how hard I work around here all day.

I certainley do appreciate what you do to keep things in order here. I don’t know how many people could maintain a 6,000′ , 3 million dollar home on the the ocean, all by herself.

Well dear, it’s not like I don’t have help.

No of course. I mean you have the gardeners, the tree cutters, the plumbers, the cable tv people, the computer guy, of course the cleaning lady team. Then there’s the pest control, elictrician, elevator repair… Oh William, how often do we need the elevator person, please. All right, all right,. Then there is the pet sitter and the hose live inner for when we go away for 2 or 3 weeks. Yes,  yes. It takes quite a bit of organization and control to maintain this household, yessir.

William, was that the doorbell?

I believe it was dear.

Oh the Dorfmans are here. It’s times like this when I wish we had a doorman or butler or something.

Yes dear.
