If the price is right....

Last night found us in the recently opened  night club. Late into the night we were joined by the owner of the premises. It was like a scene from an old gangster movie. He was surrounded by his security who were at his beck and call. We were lapping it up.....as well as the free drinks.
We were having what I would consider to be a very normal and civilised conversation about things like, how my holiday was going, what I thought of Turkey, was I married......
This is when I trot out my imaginary husband, Hugh and my two adorable children, Rory and Sadhbh whom I love very much!
He then came out with the classic line,
"I will give you 1000euro for an hour of your time."
"Pardon?"
I wasn't sure if he had said euro or lira. I mean a girl needs to know her worth!
Regardless of currency I declined his generous offer, explaining that I was "not that kind of girl".

I have been mulling over his offer in the cold light of day.
Actually, its 39 degrees and I'm in a bucket of sweat, but you know what I mean!
What is the going rate for a prostitute these days?
I don't know whether I should be flattered or insulted by his offer. I know it wasn't anywhere near Robert Redford's million dollar temptation to Demi Moore, but it still seems like a very generous amount for an hour.
And being a Primary School teacher, my major concern is
"Would this count as one of my Croke Park hours???"

On the other hand you would have to ask yourself
"Would I be worth 1000 euro an hour?"
Of course we all like to think that we are good in that department and we all have a few signature moves, but really........1000euro? Could you imagine your embarrassment if he asked for a refund due to faulty goods.
Ah well, despite all the cutbacks and Universal  Social charges I have not been reduced to selling myself just yet.
 However after the next budget I might regret declining his offer!
