“It’s been a helluva ride, hasn’t it?” Harry said. “What will you do now, now that you’ve been fired?”

“I’d like to think of it as a contract that’s expired on a mandate successfully completed,” I said pompously and spoke a line from Shakespeare in Love.

“The show must… you know…” I prompted him with my hand and he quoted Shakespeare’s famous line: “Go on!”

He laughed loudly. “That’s the movie, not Shakespeare. There is a difference.

He stopped laughing. “Seriously, what will you do now?”

“I don’t know,” I said, once more seeing a vision of myself in my room with a view with the typewriter and the bent-stem briar pipe. “I’ve been thinking, seeing as I know this campaign as if I was… you know… there! I might write a book about it.”

“Over my dead body!” he said. “Who do you think you are? Max du Preez?”

I knew he was joking. At least I thought he was joking and tonight wasn’t a night for writer’s angst.

“I’ll do it, even if it is over your dead body,” I said. “I might even have to organise a hit man just to give the story a bit of a sting in the tail.”

“In that case, I want a signed copy.”

“I’ll mail it to you.”

“How will it find me if I’m dead?”

“I’ll put on DropBox,” I said. “You can find it in the cloud.”

He laughed loudly again. He may have been a little drunk. Me too.

“What will you call it?”

“I don’t know. Something zippy, something absurd like, The Windmills of Harry Press’ Mind, Beautiful Dreamer, who knows?

“Something original, then?”
