“Not so easy being a fly on the wall”
Fly 1 They don’t mind getting up on a Saturday morning, I’ll say that for them.
Fly 2 They are only here one Saturday in a month? They could well be sleeping the hell out of all the other Saturdays.
Fly 1 True. True enough.
Fly 2 We’ve ruled out Zumba, yoga, choir. Not a step, stretch or a note between them.
Fly 1 Not a one. And we’ve also knocked in the head a water protest group.
Fly 2 I think so. They have the enthusiasm alright, plenty fire in the belly, but they are way way too happy to be as a water protest group.
Fly 1 I was sure they were a prayer group at the beginning. The way they all sat in a circle. And they have a shared reverence to something.
Fly2 If only they occasionally closed their eyes or looked upward I would have given you the prayer group.
Fly 1 And you are sure, not a political party? There is a leader, they share literature, there’s loads of discussion?
Fly2 Has anyone walked out in a huff, banged a door? Has anyone been stabbed in the back?
Fly1 Not that I noticed.
Fly 2 We can definitely rule out a political party.
Fly 1 And you have also given up on the community group idea?
Fly2 For a time I was fooled by the obvious common purpose of the group. But has anyone said, “through the chair”, “point of order”?
Fly2 And a community group would certainly have talked at this stage about holding a raffle or a cake sale.
Fly2 They are a tough group to crack for sure.
Fly1 Not to mind mentioning the parallel world…
Fly2 Stop. Stop right there. Haven’t we enough mystery on our plate besides bringing up the group next door?
Fly1 We have. We have for sure.
Fly2 I need a break. Want to head down to that sugar bowl?
