The Story of the Gilded Tea Pot
Ramona was reclining in her favorite burgundy chaise when Jeeves announced that she had a visitor.
“Oh do show him in my dearest Jeeves!” quipped Ramona.
Jeeves bowed deeply and exited the room. Ramona then hoisted her breasts to create more cleavage and awaited the arrival of her mysterious guest. The man who walked through the door was nothing like she pictured and her bosom deflated in response.
“Oh. It’s you.” Ramona said dryly. “I suppose there is no use in Jeeves fetching my magnificent Gilded Tea Pot.”
“What a warm welcome my dearest.” the man said with a condescending air. He pulled a long black pipe out of his jacket pocket and continued, “I come not for a social call, but to bring you news.”
Poindexter nearly filled the frame of the door, his enormous calloused hand fishing for a book of matches in his patched and tattered blazer. Ramona shifted uncomfortably on her chaise.
“What news…” she mused hesitantly, picking up her brandy snifter from the table and swirling its contents.
“I’ve come to tell you that I have accepted the commission in the subarctic region of Russia. I am going to study the mating patterns of the Savage Bearded Tundra Badger.
Ramona eyed him suspiciously. “Well, I suppose this calls for a cup of tea”. She rang a bell and Jeeves appeared out of the smoke issuing from Poindexter’s pipe. “Fetch the Tea Pot at once for our distinguished Zoologist.” Jeeves bowed deeply and left the room
“You know I’m no zoologist Ramona” said Poindexter with a squeak. He was beginning to feel like a trapped gazelle.
“I know” she replied, a smirk appearing across her Chanel covered face, “but you’ll always be an animal to me”.
At that moment Jeeves appeared with the Gilded Tea Pot. Without taking her eyes of Poindexter, Ramona said nonchalantly, “Oh Jeeves, do be a darling and bring that back in precisely 13 minutes.”
Jeeves bowed again and closed the mahogany door to a bewildered looking Poindexter and a hungry looking Ramona.
