It was midweek and the time just apt for a siesta, the footfalls to 

the City Museum  were few in number.  The museum curator , a 

middle-aged man who loves his stodgy puddings  and it reflected

stilettos .

" Welcome to the City Museum , Miss..." and his voice trailed.

" Armine Braganza. You may call me Amy", a big ebullient smile

"Do you have any more questions?", losing his temper
