Sandra (Mgr.) on the left who is in charge of day-to-day hostel operations and Teresa (Head of Housekeeping) on the right both feeding Her Highness Milly – who is in charge of everything else!
We have a strict “No Animals” policy at our hostel. Both the two legged and four legged variety are not welcome on our premises.
We have a young neighbor who seems to take great pleasure in flouting this rule.
We’ve been told that her name is Milly.
She hangs out at the hostel at all hours of the night and day and demands constant attention and thinks you ill-mannered if you neglect to share your food with her.
It is virtually a given that she’ll show up on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings when it is BBQ night. But she has yet to bring a measly three dollars for a burger or hot dog, crisps and a drink.
And still she gets fed!
As far as we can tell, Milly lives around the corner from the hostel on Adelaide Street, we think, but we are not exactly sure where.
She’s wandering around the hostel as I write this looking for someone to pay her attention or, feed her, at the very least.
Milly is young, affectionate, spoiled and a member of a visible minority (she’s black) and she always seems to get the affection she craves so wantonly. And anything else she desires for that matter.
I’ll have to cut this blog a little short and pet Milly before I incur her displeasure and begin receiving the evil eye from her.
