Here’s Fairy with today’s tale.
Now then Monty pay attention. If I can prise you away from Minty for five minutes, we have to think about your future. When you are married you will need an income. You can’t expect Minty to run a home and everything on fresh air! I realise Minty will continue with her modelling career but you will need to provide for her and make arrangements for a pension too. And one day there could be Baby Mice . . . they will be very expensive, what with employing a Nanny Mouse, and then there is their education!
Anyway, I have had a very interesting chat with Minty’s parents. It looks like there could be an opportunity in the Rt Hon Plantagenet’s Big-Cheese Factory for a dynamic young executive type mouse. We are going over there first thing tomorrow morning for an exploratory chat. Well, after breakfast that is.
The next day . . .
It is very good of you, Mr Plantagenet sir, to help Monty take his first step up the ladder of success. Your Cheese Factory is a fascinating and profitable business. I can see now where you made your millions – but I didn’t realised there was money to be made in cheese. All that pressing talk gives me a churning feeling. I am more of a specialist in the Salad market don’t you know.
Gosh! Are all those mice part of your workforce? Goodness, I had no idea what a huge concern it was.
Now that the Rt Hon Big-Mouse has shown you the ropes here on the factory floor Monty, we’ll show you round the offices and get you fitted up with some work wear. You’ll need overalls, boots, hat and gloves for a start. This cheese making can be messy business.
Thanks very much Mr Plantagenet, sir. I’ll make sure Monty is here bright and early on Monday morning to strengthen the cheesy team!
The Big-Mouse Cheese Factory – hummph, that sign will need altering! The ‘Fairy, Big-Mouse and Son-in-law, Cheese Factory’ sounds about right!
