Perhaps this particular period of my life could be considered a low point. Spending my time loitering in the streets outside the Judy offices, desperate to pass back through those hallowed doors, to enter that portal to the fame and fortune I so justly deserved.

I have never claimed to be the most honest of men but I do consider myself to be somewhat imaginative in the ways I perform that dishonesty. Not so here, Ladies and Gentlemen, not so here. Imagine my embarrassment to be caught out in such a base caper… and by Miss Duval too!

Still, softly, softly, catchee monkey, as they say. Join me next time for a very exciting notice!
