That cruise we went on...? Well, apparently we're rich. Ok, so it was a kind of luxury cruise (our reward to ourselves for no holiday for three years), but actually, our shameful secret is that we're not rich. We were imposters all along.
But hey! Never mind. The cruise company thinks we are, for it seems that we now belong to an exclusive "club", and have just received our copy of the club magazine*. And guess what. It's full of posh watches and the kind of jewellery that is so expensive that they are coy about mentioning the price, presumably secure in the knowledge that people like us will buy it anway, because what's a few thousand pounds here or there among friends?
But maybe we are rich, because we're going to Corsica on Sunday...
*I wonder whether it takes short stories? I'm happy to throw in the odd Rolex if they pay me enough. It could go towards the next cruise.
(The watch in the picture is only just over £36,000. I can give you the details.)
