Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark

The first violinist sits down, wobbles around on her chair, gets up so fast she sends it flying.

“I cannot work like this. Every single chair is broken.”

Off she whooshes.

Kate suppresses a smile. The conductor swears.

‘Bringing in Violetta James – a mistake. Both skill and temper are worse than anticipated.’

He looks at the violin section and points his baton at Kate.

‘You were in the running for first violinist, Kate?’

Kate nods.

“Congratulations. You’re promoted. A round of applause, please.”

Standing ovation.

Kate bows.

The irony is, now she has to sit in the wobbly chair again.
