The long Dark Teatime of the soul

By Douglas Adams

 

Into the well kempt - grounds that lay just on the outskirts of a well - kempt village on the fringes of the well – kempt Cotswolds turned a less than well – kempt car.

 

It was a battered yellow Citroen 2CV which had had one careful owner but also three suicidally reckless ones.  It made its way up the driveway with a reluctant air as if all it asked for from life was to be tipped into a restful ditch in one of the adjoining medows and there allowed to settle in graceful abandonment, instead of which here it was being asked to drag itself all the way up this long gravelled drive which it would no doubt soon be called upon to drag itself all the way back down again, to what possible purpose it was beyond its whit to imagine.

 

It drew to a halt in front of the elegant stone entrance to the main building, and then began to trundle slowly backwards again until its occupant yanked on the handbrake, which evoked from the car a sort of strangled “Eeek”….

 

After a few minutes a porter came out and examined it, adopted a disapproving manner and then, for lack of anything more positive to do, went back in.
