Returned from the hospital on Wednesday feeling relaxed after my massage. So why did I decide to tackle the domestic admin that has accumulated?
We changed phone providers in May, but British Telecom are still sending me bills. After spending 3/4s of a hour on the phone I was eventually being dismissed by a curt employee stating they had no record of a transfer. I read out the letter I had received from them stating when the transfer was meant to take place. 'We have no record of it on the system,' came the reply. 'You will have to request again.' By this time I was not relaxed anymore. I was storming about the house grumbling. And then it struck me. The image of Prometheus having to deal with BT. The absurdity of it broke through my anger. I roared with laughter.
I am now left with the conundrum of how to bring such a petty issue into my Prometheus tale. Do they have telephones in heaven? Perhaps the woman gives him a mobile so they can stay in touch and he starts getting bills?
On a more serious note I was watching a tv programme about the Amazon. They visited the Matis tribe who have been devastated by Hepatitis. It was very moving to see these simple people bought down to low. They said it was Hep B. If so, why cant they be vaccinated? I've commented on Bruce Parry's blog to find out more.
