The only thing that could have roused her from sleep

A distinction in a recently written dissertation. Of course no one will believe it if she says it was totally unexpected and perhaps somewhat undeserved as well.

Unwilling to believe the email that has arrived in her POP mailbox, she trudges to the internet to read the same missive online. Still unsure, she logs in to the university website and checks there as well. And then she summons M and makes him read all three.

Now she’s sitting on a large armchair, eating an entire tub of rum-n-raisin (homemade) ice cream by herself. Smirking a little. And licking her whiskers.

* homemade does not mean ‘made at home by her’. the maker is a friendly neighbourhood auntyji who is buttered up regularly precisely for privileges such as this.

but she insists that you be told about her unbeatable mango-ice cream making skills.
