MANIC MONDAY - PULL


MANIC MONDAY LINK


The Mayor and I


When I saw the word "pull" for Manic Monday it reminded me of a Cocktail Party organized by the City.

The Cocktail took place in the beautiful decorated room of the City Hall in Waterloo. Everybody was well dressed and some politicians and the mayor were there too.

I greated everybody I knew, took a drink and looked after something to sit down. In this moment a lady came over to me and while I was talking with her, I pulled the chair towards me without looking. The chair resisted so I pulled a little more and suddenly heard a big boom behind me. The mayor had had the same idea and also wanted a chair and while I pulled on one side he had pulled on the other. Unfortunately (for him) I was the winner and when I turned around to see what had happened, he was sitting on the floor still with a glass in his hands and looked at me like a surprised owl.

Look of the mayor

People around started to laugh and I appologized but ever since when he sees me walking in the street I have the impression that he is avoiding me.

I understand why he's fearful when he see you in the street! Ha! Ha!
Oui, tu as raison Carla est vraiment exceptionnelle mais le petit, lui, nous inquiète tellemnt. Il a écarté notre partenaire allemand dans son discours devant le parlement anglais alors que depuis longtemps nous marchons de concert avec eux pour l'Europe. Des années de travail pour la réconciliation. I a vanté le modèle de société anglais alors que pardon du point de vue social je préfère la France, il semble s'aligner sur les américains pour la politique étrangère et commence à envoyer nos jeunes en Afghanistan. Tu comprends, même Carla ne nous fait pas oublier que nous devons rester vigilants vis à vis de Bling bling. Mais quand même, ce sacripan il a quoi comme secret pour recevoir les faveurs de la belle?!

Very funny, Gattina! Did the mayor drop his drink all over himself? :D

Putting a politician in their proper place is always a good idea.

At least he didn't spill his drink. Too funny.
