How Are You Celebrating?
Today is World Toilet Day. Are you, like Jeannie Sue here, doing the traditional Dance of Bubble-Action Exhilaration?
Actually, here at the Apartment Muscato (doesn't have quite the same ring as our old Villa, does it?), we do have reason to celebrate.
Mr. Muscato, you see, has been auditioning for a replacement for our late, lamented Mrs. Galapatti-da Silva (who herself followed in the not inconsiderable footsteps, you may remember, of dear Ermilia back in the Sultanate), and he would appear at last to have landed a Live One: a nice, quiet lady (that second attribute has been mandatory since the days of Ermilia's predecessor, who sang, nonstop) with excellent references and good availability, and moreover one who is willing to appear on a biweekly basis for something less than the kind of sums once reserved for psychiatrists and your higher-end sex workers (i.e. the usual going rate in this unexpectedly affluent suburb).
I couldn't be happier, and while Sra. Adelita won't be a daily presence as were her predecessors, I can attest that we are marking today's august holiday with fixtures to be proud of (at least in comparison to their parlous state earlier this week).
If you're looking for ways to celebrate in your own way, well, I have just the destination for you. You're welcome, and many happy returns of the day.
