I was a little too close to the safe when we blew the doors off…

Ah, I see. I do wish that you had made that fact plain a bit earlier in the proceedings. So if I can get the money to you by tomorrow morning then the deal goes ahead, if not then I have a ticket to Johannesburg which isn’t really of any use to me?

Perhaps I should finally explain my apparent reluctance to use a phone. Some years ago, before I went into the fitness training business, I was involved in what you might call the shady side of the jewellery business. One day I was a little too close to the safe when we blew the doors off, I lost both ears and my hearing has been seriously impaired ever since, making a conversation on the phone entirely impractical. There, I’ve admitted it.

The Western Union office is open untill 6 this evening, I shall go and transfer the money now. The we will see who is serious Mr. Nathan.
