Every time Roland went to one of these events he drank too much coffee. To keep awake, he supposed. It never worked. He always dozed off after a lunch he wouldn’t usually eat.
Why? Because it was free? Because he was bored?
The after lunch speaker asked the selfsame questions. When no one answered, he clanged a gong, banged a drum, then honked an airhorn, thrice.
‘Christianity isn’t about sleeping or skulking in the shadows,’ proclaimed this overzealous speaker. ‘Go make some noise!’
Roland adjusted his seat position. An almighty parp escaped his bloated belly. ‘Excuse me. Too many beans.’
