Omar’s Diary – Sunday 3rd January 2014 – home alone, apart from the chavs

Me with my new banana before the catnip wore off

There is something very seriously wrong with the new yellow banana that I was presented with on Friday evening. It just does not give me the buzz that I have had from previous ones. I am not off my face in this picture, just resting after a very stressful day. Consequently it is languishing on the carpet in the spare room. Things are just not made the way they used to be.

Earlier today I saw the man servant’s blue kit bag being brought in from the garage. This can only mean that he is going away again and I will be left alone with the lady servant. I do hate it when man servant goes away. You must by now have realised that I have got lady servant trained up to my exacting standards. But as far as man servant is concerned; another week of training this week would have had him jumping through fire hoops for me.

It is all going to be set back so badly unless he is only away for one night. He has not packed much so I hope it is only one night.

Later this evening I then saw lady servant putting items of clothing in the blue kit bag which most definitely are not the sort of thing man servant would wear. Unless of course he has a secret. I have been alone with him several times and never seen him wear those sorts of clothes.

It then got worse.

‘Sue is going to pop in sometime between twelve and two and make sure Omar and the chavs get their lunch’ lady servant said.

Between twelve and two! That really is a bit fast and loose with the old routine. I must eat at twelve thirty.

I am distraught. What about breakfast and dinner and who is going to make sure the heating is on? That means those clothes are not for man servant but for lady servant who must be going away as well. How long are they are going away for? Oh, I do hope it is just for one night, especially as they only seemed to have arranged one visitor to look after me. I wish they would consult me before making any plans. I just feel so left out.

I live in southern Britain near the fabulous New Forest. While studying for a BSc in International Studies I have developed a strong belief in 'NIBAW' or 'nothing is black and white'. Hence my favourite saying "Too often we...enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought" (John F Kennedy).
