Year 2, week 7: GolfDay

So BusyBody had a baby girl last night.  When the clerks rang the hospital this morning to check on their progress, one of the nurses let on that the baby had arrived exactly on time.  To the day.  Which of course got all the clerks flicking through their diaries given that FanciesHimself, the junior clerk, is one of the two possible fathers along with OldSmoothie.  Apparently, this timing is too early for Fancies himself to have been responsible.  All of which squarely puts OldSmoothie in the frame and adds more weight to the theory that BusyBody’s only being allowed back to chambers on the basis that she keeps quiet about the identity of the father.

All of which perhaps also explains why OldSmoothie made a point of being seen in chambers today, all business as usual.  Except it wasn’t business as usual since everyone knows that Friday is his golf day.  Everyone, that is, except his wife who apparently believes that it remains one of his regular court days.

    Congratulations to BusyBody – though I don’t envy her the task of being the mother of a newborn while trying to deal with the politics of Chambers.
