Past Imperfect

Past Imperfect – #244

SR 1244

Giselle, on the Right: “Whatever are you working on, darling?”

Veronique, on the Left: “Oh, I’m just jotting down a few notes for when the police arrive. Don’t mind me.”

Giselle: “The police? That seems rather intrusive. Why on earth would they do that?”

Veronique: “Well, I did just happen to kill the man who used to be sitting on the other side of me.”

Giselle: “Really, now? How exciting! Your life is so much more interesting than mine. May I ask what led to this development?”

Veronique: “It was absolutely horrible. He made a negative comment about my hat.”

Giselle: “How appalling! Clearly the man does not recognize Chanel when he sees it, so of course he had to die.”

Veronique: “Precisely. It was a mercy killing, really. Still, it won’t be long before some fool finds his body in the loo and proceeds to make a fuss about the discovery. You know how those working-class people are, always bellowing about something they don’t like.”

Giselle: “Perhaps we should depart, to avoid all that annoying mess with the commoners forgetting who has trust funds and who doesn’t.”

Veronique: “Are you daft? I haven’t finished my coffee yet.”

  1. Giselle seems to take the news of her friend being a spontaneous murderer quite in stride. I question the table and chair setup. It’s ridiculously cramped even if they had three friends joining them they’d be leg over leg, pretzeled with one another.

    • Giselle was raised poorly by unfocused parents, so it’s no surprise that she doesn’t understand boundaries and limitations. As for the unsavory leg room at the cafe, well, it’s Paris. The people are so crammed together that unexpected pregnancies occur quite regularly. C’est la vie!

  2. hmmm …. I’m guessing either she followed him into the men’s or he followed her into the women’s — which would be a completely new reason to kill him … or I suppose she could have killed him at the table and drug him into the loo…

    Interesting conundrum.
