Filling in for Susie While She's Away on Vacation
Posted by F&S
Susie, Martha’s executive assistant at the farm in Bedford, is away on vacation. Poor Susie! She sure picked the wrong week to be on Long Island, because we heard that they received record amounts of rainfall! Oh well! Not much you can do about the weather. Anyway, we, Frenchies, decided to help out and go to her office to cover her post for a while.
1 Francesca! No time for napping! It's time to get to work! Susie's on vacation and someone has to fill in for her. Who is better suited than we, Frenchies, of superior intelligence?
2 Let's make sure everything's in order at her desk first.
3 Oh dear, look at this tangled phone cord! How does one tangle a phone cord, anyway? I have a real pet-peeve (ha-ha) about this kind of thing.
4 I'll just unplug the wire from the handset and allow it to uncoil.
5 There - That is so much better. Susie will certainly appreciate it. Oh, and a call is coming in!
6 Martha Stewart's residence, Sharkey speaking! Oh hello, Martha. Yes, everything is perfectly under control. Francesca and I are busy at work and there's very little to report. See you when you get home.
7 Now let me log in to her computer to see if any important emails have come in. Hmmm....what's the password?
8 Sharkey, let me whisper it in your ear so that no one will hear. Susie really loves us and she uses 'Frenchies Rule'. Don't you think that's so nice?
9 On second thought - the emails can wait. Is that the TV remote I see?
10 Let's turn on the TV for a bit.
11 I just love Animal Planet, don't you, Franny?
12 Sharkey, I see a mountain of work piled up over there and I think you should turn off Animal Planet and concentrate on what needs to be done! There seems to be a lot of paperwork in the filing basket.
13 And it's marked for filing under 'Animals'.
14 Look at these extensive files in the 'Animal' drawer! You can tell how important all of Martha's animals are to her! Each and every one of us has our very own file!
15 Wow, Franny! Your work ethic is very inspiring. I'll get cracking on those emails now. I want Susie to be so proud of us when she comes back from vacation next week!
