95. A Fantasy

When the Ambassador of Escalopia returned home for lunch, his wife got a shock. He looked pale and his clothes were in a frightful state. ‘What has happened ?’ she asked. ‘How did your clothes get into such a mess ?. ‘A fire extinguisher, my dear’, answered the Ambassador drily. ‘University students set the Embassy on fire this morning’. ‘Good heavens !’ exclaimed his wife. ‘And where were you at the time ?’. ‘I was in my office as usual, answered the Ambassador. ‘The fire broke out in the basement. I went down immediately, of course, and that fool, Horst, aimed a fire extinguisher at me. He thought I was on fire. I must definitely get that fellow posted’. The Ambassador’s wife went on asking questions, when she suddenly noticed a big hole in her husband’s hat. ‘And how can you explain that ?’. she asked. ‘Oh, that’, said the Ambassador. ‘Someone fired a shot through my office window. Accurate, don’t you think ? Fortunately, I wasn’t wearing it at the time. If I had been, I would not have been able to get home for lunch’.

Aku turun segera, tentu saja, dan bahwa orang bodoh, Horst, bertujuan alat pemadam kebakaran pada saya. Dia pikir saya terbakar. Saya pasti harus mendapatkan bahwa sesama diposting ‘. Istri Duta Besar melanjutkan bertanya, ketika ia tiba-tiba melihat sebuah lubang besar di topi suaminya. “Dan bagaimana Anda bisa menjelaskan itu?”. dia bertanya. ‘Oh, itu, kata Duta Besar. ‘Seseorang melepaskan tembakan melalui jendela kantor saya. Akurat, tidak Anda berpikir? Untungnya, saya tidak memakainya pada saat itu. Jika saya telah, saya tidak akan bisa pulang untuk makan siang ‘.
