His job depended on it

26 doughnut 801022The corpulent official stared down at the cream-filled doughnut. He smiled and sighed, patting his generous stomach. He knew this delicious treat was doing him no good but he had to do it. His job depended on it.

He turned round in a panic as he heard a scratching noise behind him, but then remembered it was his son’s turn to look after his class’ hamster.

Turning back to the plate, he picked up the doughnut and settled into reading the paper’s front page article: ‘Twin Town’s New Totem Pole’, being careful not to spill anything down his Santa suit.
