Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary, should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf.
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day

Leslie Monk, the long suffering.

Anyone for Tennis
Tennis with Mrs. Monk is not exactly dynamic at the best of times, and she is quite relaxed about which ball to swipe at, and which ball to ignore.
In a feeble attempt to get a rally going, it is my job to run about chasing every ball coming my side of the net whether in or out of the court, either wide, or long; it is my job to get all balls back, so described, in the general vicinity of Mrs. Monk so she can get a good swipe at it. If the ball is not in reachable distance of Mrs. Monk, she simply scowls and yells something like, "How the hell do you expect me to get that?"
So I was slightly aghast to witness Mrs. Monk taking the phone out of her pocket and taking a call in mid rally. (Rally, I dream of a rally)
It was a call from the BBC. They want her to do a Video Diary on a BBC Web site.
As she spoke on the phone, I fired a few serves down her end of the court, trying to get as close to Mrs. Monk as I possibly could.
Later I told her she could have done a video diary for my web-site. No thank you she said. .
