Throw Him Away and Get a New One

Hilary turned off the gas cooker and brought the frying pan to the table. With a deft flip of her spatula, she deposited an egg onto Tony’s plate. It settled like a sudden snowfall on a landscape of bacon, sausages and beans.

“Marvellous cook, your wife,” said Tony.

“Thank you,” said Hilary. She turned to Angus. “You’ll have to make your own breakfast. The house needs tidying and I don’t suppose I can rely on any help from you.”

Angus was baffled. “It’s a bit early for housework, isn’t it?”

“In case you hadn’t noticed, we do have a guest.”

“Oh please,” said Tony. “Don’t go to any trouble on my behalf.”
