The list

I can’t tell you much more, or else of course I would have to kill you, but I work for a government agency. My colleagues and I simply call it the Agency, with a stress on the A so you can hear the capital letter.
None of this would bear any importance if the said Agency wasn’t going to publish, discreetly and very shortly, a list of vacant positions around the world.
This list will highly likely include the name of the country and city where Mademoiselle Red and I will live from this summer on.

Needless to say that I can’t wait to read it.
Need less to say too that you must pretend you have never read this post.

( If you’re patient and ready to wait for 30 seconds after you read this message, you may be surprised to see that it doesn’t self-destruct)

Chances are slim, plus Red is not too keen on going back yet. But you never know.

red said...

I, for one, am very excited. Wherever we go. Bring on the list.

Wahey! The List...

"Berlin, Berlin, Berlin"

Everyone join in, it's got a ring to it - kind of like being a Leinster fan and just chanting "Leinster" at various stages in a game.

Come on Berlin, I really fancy a holiday destination in Berlin (or possibly Copenhagen, but it doesn't have a good chant)

Can J choose for you ?because J would like un next country!!

Caro said...

That's very exciting. How many choices will you have to pick from? Are they all in Europe?

The Major said...

Dar: good point. All together now, Berlin, Berlin, Berlin.
Yep, it does sound great.

Gi: What country would you choose then ?

Caro: They're all over the world, and i can ask for as many as I want.

gi said...

BLOSSOM said...

Is DUBAI on the Agency list ?

The Major said...

Gi: pretty sure that Lozere won't be in the List...

Blossom: Dubai may be, although I'll have to wait a couple more days to find out.

gi said...

it's very regrettable !!I must still go to see you in fly the next year

Blossom said...

MY SPIES tell me you and the RED may be heading North East towards Eastern Europe. Dont tell the Agency I told you or I might have to shoot myself. My informants name ends in "SKI" !!!

The Major said...

I know who you are, watch your back, the Agency might know too...

Jayne said...

Choose somewhere exotic. How often do you get to live somewhere fabulous and get paid for it? Well, all the time for you obviously but the rest of us can dream...

The Major said...

Jayne, why don't you pack your things and find a job somewhere fabulous ?

Jayne said...

I'm too knackered to anything that proactive. Plus my cat's too fat to fit in a suitcase...
