Facing up to the return to work involves recalling when holidays are not all they are cracked up to be, as, for example, when sitting on a foreign beach during the first days of a holiday, serenity is interrupted with the friendly salutation: "Hullo there, miss! Are you here for two weeks as well?"
Picture the added distress of a west of Scotland teacher when a member of her primary 2 class, with parents in close attendance, pierced the air with such a greeting during a leisurely Mediterranean swim. Alas for Miss X (for such she had better remain), she had entered the water in a topless state, and spent the first three minutes of inconsequential conversation with everything below neck level hidden from view, while mentally reviewing the solutions to her dilemma.
Her eventual escape was aided by an extremely large inflatable Lilo which covered everything including her confusion.
