An Evening in a Restaurant

Eating out with MasterM
has advantages and disadvantages.

EXAMPLE OF DISADVANTAGES

MasterM
I will have Mangoes with Strawberry Sorbet

Young Waitress
I am afraid that there are no more mangoes

MasterM
Heartbreak!!
That is the only reason I came here

(Young Waitress looks distressed)
But wait!!
We have mangoes at home...
I could go and get them...

(MrsM purses her lips)

Young Waitress
I am afraid that there is no more
Strawberry Sorbet either


MasterM
This
Is
Terrible.

(Young Waitress looks more distressed)
What do you recommend instead?

Young Waitress
(anxiously)
You could have Strawberries with Mango Sorbet.

MasterM
I could...
but...
strawberries aren't in season...

(MrsM narrows her eyes)
but...
it sounds delicious so I will have that.
Thank you!

(Young Waitress smiles a HUGE smile)

EXAMPLE OF ADVANTAGES

Young Waitress gives 30% discount off bill.

  1. That boy will do well in his chosen course - he definitely has the knack of turning a discussion round to his advantage - do they have copious quantities of mangos in South Africa? If not I feel he may be disappointed

  2. He will go far - metaphorically as well as literally. A chap after my own heart, for sure!

  4. Master M is a joy! Like the waitress, I too have a HUGE smile when I hear of his 'exploits'! My grandson loved Stellenbosch and came back with an impressive knowledge of South African wine, much to the despair of his parents and the delight of his grandfather!

  7. Do we know the name of the local Stellenbosch paper? Is it worth clubbing together to put in ad to let the local know young Master M is coming after Christmas. You know, so they can lock up their daughters and all.
