Day 202, week 42: foiled

Ha!  I have to admit to taking some pleasure in hearing that UpTights and TheVamp lost today.  Both of them arrived at court done up to the nines only to find that the particular judge in question stood them up by calling in sick.  This meant that the case was transferred to a different judge and just to cap it, a female one at that.  Well, she, like the rest of the legal community knew the stories about the lascivious nature of her fellow judge and it didn’t take much of her female intuition to sniff out what was going on.  In fact, going by the pungent smell of expensive perfume which stunk out the clerks’ room on their return, ‘sniff out’ would probably be accurate.

“How long has your junior been instructed on this case, Ms UpTights?”

“That is not relevant, Your Honour.”

“Even so.  Humour me.  How long?”

“Since yesterday morning.”

“And when did you find out who would be hearing this case?”

“Er.  Yesterday morning.”

“And would there be any chance, any correlation between these two happenings?”

“Your Honour.  M’Learned Friend is extremely experienced in matters such as this.”

“Yes,”  she took a long look at TheVamp before continuing, “I’m sure she is.”

The case was lost before it had even started and UpTights and TheVamp were left looking like two women out on the pull who’d been turned away at the door of the only nightclub in town.

Serves them right.  For once, there was some justice and the lovely middle aged lady got her cash.
