Alkis and I decided to ..play truant from work and spend some time in hometown Nicosia ! God knows how I love these sudden get-aways even if it's only for a few hours ....a pleasant break in the routine of soon after the summer holidays anyway ! It was as hot as hell in Nicosia but we had a lovely time shopping school stuff and clothes in my hometown - there were great sales up to 70% off. Then we had a long coffee break at Marks and Spencer's where I had the last sin of my summer break: warm apple pie and vanilla ice cream and then lunch with friends at Aperitivo. Soon after lunch we drove back to work.
At about 9 pm, I came back from work and as I was parking my car in my garage a huge rat leapt out from ...nowhere, all of a sudden, and comfortably sat on the bonnet of my car ! It wasn't the least bit frightened but ...I was ! Pertrified ..I'd just sit there in the car and in the dark ...I had the funny impression that the rat was looking straight through me ....Fearing that the rat might just as well attack me ... I got off the car very quietly....No sooner had I done so than one of the many stray cats of my neighbourhood violently attacked the rat and devoured it ...right before my very eyes !!!
It was a horrible sight ! I ran up the stairs to my flat and...like a cat on hot bricks, I told hubby what had just happened in our garage ...."I think I smell ...a rat", was all he said ... We finally engaged in....pillow fight as a warm-up for ...pillow talk !
