Throw Him Away and Get a New One

For the first time in a long while, Angus could see a break in the dark clouds hanging over his life. It was no more than a chink but it was enough to allow through a thin, watery ray of hope. He’d promised himself he wouldn’t go the way of Felix Bunbury; now was his last chance to make sure he didn’t.

“You know,” he said, “I’ve thought long and hard about why Hilary discarded me. At first, it made no sense. I was a good husband and father. There was always food on the table. My kids were the first on the street to get the latest Playstation. I never even came close to committing adultery.

“I was everything any woman could reasonably hope for.”


“Except I was dull. Dependable, loving, faithful – but dull. Dull, dull, deeply and desperately dull.”

“Now we’re making progress,” said Mason Walters. “Admitting a problem is the first step towards curing it. Drink your whisky, Mr Highsmith. and get some sleep. On the morrow we’ll see about unfreezing your assets and getting you a new job. So long as you do as I tell you, you’ll be back on your feet in no time.”
