Poor Old Ruth

She agreed to Jill coming back to Brookfield because she had realised she missed Jill doing all the cooking and housework, and now Jill has reneged on an agreement she didn’t make and is lounging about on the sofa and failing to make cakes.

Ruth will be reduced to buying ready-cooked food from the shop!

Somehow, I can’t quite bring myself to feel sorry for her. Funny that.

I have to admit to not having been completely serious… Might even have had my tongue just a tiny bit in my cheek…

Take it out again and have a drink to celebrate Ruth getting what she deserves, that’s my advice.

(Also what I am doing myself, right now).

Oh, she hasn’t got what she really deserves; that is something lingering, with boiling oil in it, I fancy. Something of that sort. I think boiling oil occurs in it, but I’m not sure. I know it’s something humorous, but lingering, with either boiling oil or melted lead.

(Unfortunately it’s an unjust world, and virtue is triumphant only in theatrical performances.)

I am not sure why we should pity Ruth but Jill is playing a great game by making sure that she is sorely missed in the kitchen

I would hate to play poker against Jill
