Jeeves Clairovoyant

Even before these events transpired, my barrista, the summum bonum of my life, divined them in the grinds.

She summoned me (“Bertie”), supplied my ususal combustible concoction, and intoned, “Enjoy.”

It wasn’t what she said but the way she said it.

“Rad, Jeeves, what ho!” said I.

As I blew out the door, winds exceeding 90 mph blew through the Savannah café. I landed down the road on Aunt Agatha’s bulldog, Horatio, who was as pleased to see me as a vulture on resurrection day.

My espresso, as predicted, survived. Extricating myself from Horatio, I took a sip. I enjoyed.

    1. Oh you’ll love his comedic Edwardian universe! I envy you getting to meet Lord Emsworth, Bertie, Jeeves, Mr. Mulliner, Psmith, and Galahad Threepwood for the first time. 🤗

    1. Dear Rochelle,

      If you ever get curious, here’s a link (Gutenberg) for some free Wodehouse short story collections. The top selection? “The Inimitable Jeeves.” Thanks for putting up with my insanity —You’re a good sport! 🙂

      Aleichem shalom,
      Dora

        1. Wodehouse was a comic genius Dale and if you get the time also look up the TV series Jeeves & Wooster *ing Hugh Laurie (Bertie Wooster), Stephen Fry (Jeeves). Their portrayal was exactly what I’d imagined the characters to be.

    1. Anatole can’t abide Southern environs where pecans are more prevalent than cheese! Bertie’s a delight, ain’t he? Thanks Subroto.
