Sangita In Jerusalem

Sangita In Jerusalem

Sangita Patel Douglas was in her Jerusalem home cooking dinner.

She was the wife of William Wallace Rob Roy James Stuart Douglas the deputy consul at the British consulate in West Jerusalem.

Her husband had been the Scottish Nationalist Party MSP (Member of the Scottish Parliament) for the Eildon Hills.

But after the pro-independence side had lost last year’s September 18th referendum on Scottish independence, British Prime Minister David Cameron had named her husband the British Deputy Consul in West Jerusalem to show there were no hard feelings.

It had been a chaotic time in the city the past few weeks with the Israeli national general election happening.

Much to the surprise of most pollsters and media pundits, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had won the election.

She had heard from her husband that the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv had decided not to lower the embassy flag as a sign of mourning despite a directive from the White House that they do so.

She prepared the corned beef sandwiches and put them on the dinner table.

Her husband William Wallace Rob Roy James Stuart Douglas and the family bagpiper Pan Deux (who was the spitting image of a fabled hired assassin for the U.S. government Pan Goatee since they were both genetically created by noted British mad scientist Dr. Cadbury Rocher- the difference being Pan Goatee was psycho and Pan Deux was not) joined her.

“So,” Sangita asked her husband, “why do you think Bibi won again?”.

“The Israeli people probably decided that Israel has too many enemies at the moment and they probably felt only Bibi could stand up to them,” her husband replied.

“And what have you been doing, Pan Deux?” Sangita asked the tartan kilt wearing furry goat-legged family bagpiper.

“I’m trying to compose a Scottish ballad about how a total solar eclipse at the North Pole on the first day of spring occurs only once every 100,000 years,” Pan Deux replied as he dipped his corn-beef sandwich into his porridge.

“It must be difficult finding the words for that,” Sangita passed him the brown sugar for his porridge.

“It is,” Pan Deux put the brown sugar on his porridge and then added some of Sangita’s delicious curry sauce, “I wonder how Robbie Burns would describe it.”

“He’d probably write, ‘Tis not a brae bricht moonlicht nicht tonicht’, ” her husband said which was the old Scottish way of saying “It’s not a bright moon lit night tonight.”

Outside the house, a bunny rabbit chased a frog out of the garden.

To be continued.

    Lol – I’m thinking of dropping my Economist subscription and just read your blog. Same news, but so much more fun this way!

      Thanks very much for the supreme compliment. 🙂

      Years ago my dad and I met a former Canadian Member of Parliament William Powell who became a writer and analyst for The Economist when we were in a restaurant in Stamford, England.

      He told us about the magazine so my dad subscribed.

      I really enjoyed reading The Economist and their articles.

        I’ve been a subscriber since my student days. It’s the only magazine my wife and I read religiously, although we’ve unsubscribed twice in protest to their line on Kosovo and Iraq. In both cases, the Economist screamed for war, which my wife and I felt would be ruinous. Both times we felt we had been right; Kosovo led to Putin and Iraq to ISIS.

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      Yes, Clinton’s fiasco in Kosovo led to Putin.

      And Bush’s fiasco in Iraq led to ISIS.

      And now the 2016 U.S. Presidential election will probably be a contest between a Bush and a Clinton.

      Talk about a Hobson’s choice for the next major war.

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      Indeed. 🙂

    William Wallace Rob Roy James Stuart Douglas – that name is HAUNTING! hehehe … Does the Ribbit, Ribbit exist in the ‘Brave Heart’ film as well? That would be nice – and with a kilt on. 🙂

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      Thanks for the compliment on the name, Sherrie. 🙂

      Yes, Mel Gibson is thinking of making a new film “Brave Frog” about a frog in a kilt. 😉

      He’s a frog in a kilt who visits a real red neck town in Texas- that’s why he’s a “brave frog”.

    Ribbit! Ribbit! Brave frog! In kilt! LOL 🙂
