You’ve got to be patient in this job. There’s a lot of hanging about – not much action. In fact very rarely are my talents called on. It’s what I would call a sedentary life, this.
You ask about my interests? You suppose this is great for people-watching, that I get to see the world go by? You suppose that I witness all sorts of goings-on like a woman who exchanges her son for a sugar-plum fairy?
Hmmm. I guess there’s something in that. Sometimes
I belong to a workers’ union. Our motto? “They also serve who only stand and wait.”
