One man’s joke……..

Posted: August 26, 2011 in Uncategorized

I am currently reading Blood Sisters by Alessandro Perissinotto, and yesterday came across a passage that had me chuckling until I realised that one man’s joke might be another’s social comment on my old profession. I would be the last person in the world to defend the reputation of dentists, especially as my own past colleagues include a murderer, and a convicted insider trader. That image of dentists and lawyers constantly on holiday might well have some  justification, although of course I was the exception. 

Whatever the case, Dr Callegari appeared less than a minute later. One meter ninety tall, with a tan redolent of tropical beaches, the kind of mahogany-coloured tan you might see on a dentist or a lawyer, not a hospital doctor in mid-career. 

The August edition of the Agatha Christie Blog Carnival has been posted. Thirteen contributors have produced twenty posts, and you can also get details of the special birthday celebration posts due on 15 September, which will replace the September carnival.
