: : By the way, anyone got some spare cash around? Daniel Day-Lewis' gatehouse on his estate in Ireland is for sale! Just a few hundred thousand apiece, maybe?
: : -Susan
: Oh, Marcia!
: Don't you have some extra millions stashed somewhere? Here is an opportunity the likes of which you may never see again. If you cash in all your stocks and bonds, retirement accounts, CDs; mortgage the house, the hubby, the kids...
: Just think of it... you'll be right down the lane from the main house... Come on, you can do it, girl!!
*Squawksquawksquawk!!!* *Quack-quack!!* What's this, what's this?? The Gatehouse?? *Squark!!* On DDL's estate, you say? *Quarggle, clack!* Omigoodness, ohmigosh! Un-quackin'-believable!! I went waddling over to tell MMMMarcia, but as I approached her house, she came flying out the front door with a gun in her hand, and a ski mask over her head, nearly knocking me on my big, feathered behind! *BIG quack!* I heard her yelling into her cell phone as she raced by, "I don't care WHO you have to bump, get me on the next plane to Ireland, NOW!!" *Quack, quack, quack! Squarkle!* Then she she scrambled into a waiting taxi & yelled for the driver to head for the nearest bank, FAST! *QUACK and DOUBLEQUACK!!* As the cab made & rapid U-turn & squealed off down the street, I heard her say something to the cabby about there being a great big tip in it for him if he'd wait outside the bank with the meter (and the engine) running! *Squack, quack!*
Apparently MMMM had already heard the news I came to deliver!
*Squawk-squawk-quack!* All I can say is, LOOK OUT IRELAND!! She's a Woman With A Mission!!
Yours Hysterically, Once Again,
