Murray was just about to serve for the Championship when the doorbell rang.  She pressed the pause button viciously with a barely muted “s**t”.  Precariously balancing a myriad of luggage on the doorstep was Tom, with Carmela, his Spanish bride-to-be.  “Thanks a lot, Mum”, he muttered. “We decided to get a taxi. You didn’t answer your mobile or the house phone.”  She flapped her hands helplessly, knowing how important this first meeting at the airport was supposed to have been.  “Well, you know what I’m like when Wimbledon’s on. I’d forget my head if it was loose”.  And with a backwards glance, “Come on in – I put it on pause……”.

One thought on “Priorities

  1. I don’t know what happened to my original comment – I wrote it last week. Anyway, what i said was that it doesn’t seem to matter how old they are, they always need you exactly when you want to be doing something else. Even if you’ve been available all day… I felt the frustration and the resignation of the mother.
