Hadji, me again!
I have been thinking and re-thinking about your email. It was a shock for sure. In any event now that we are communicating again, at least in the short term, can I draw your attention to an outstanding debt?
It was for Kim. Kim! Yes, you remember him surely. The Saluki you picked up in Cairo and dragged across the desert with you to Persepolis. He cost me a fortune transporting him back home on the boat, let along the quarantine fees that were attached to him. You were in so much of a hurry you left him behind in your race to chase the Yank ” back home!”
And of course we had Salim, the ruddy falcon that you would insist on trying to train, especially during breakfast. I know I wanted to dress up in feathers, but having them sprayed over me and sticking to the butter was not exactly what I had in mind. Shall I send you my Bank details to reimburse?
Affectionally but still rather miffed,
PS – I have found your gold slippers. Probably not what you would wear anymore but that’s not an excuse to leave them in my linen cupboard
