The names have been changed.

The school secretary is an indestrucible woman of mature years. She's seen it all and done most of it too.

In my class I have a boy with a double barrelled surname of Italianesque, nay, baroque proportions.

Today I heard her thick Brooklyn accent over the intercom.

"Mr Mondale? Mr Mondale? Can you tell that kid with the name that he's being picked up by Lisa's mom"


"You know, Mostin Berlusconi-WHATEVER"
