Unit 6A The Romans, Boudicca
Interviewer: (Aside) Now, here’s one lady I really don’t want to get on the wrong side of! Careful what I say!
Good day to you, Queen Boudicca!
Boudicca: What’s your business? Come on man, I haven’t got all day!
Interviewer: (Aside) What was I just saying?
Boudicca: What was that? I warn you, I have a sixth sense for spies! And I don’t use kitten gloves when it comes to handling them!
Interviewer: (Aside) Goodness! When I took on this job, I didn’t sign up for having my life put in peril!
Boudicca: You’re right. I will show you no mercy if you keep babbling on to whoever it is that’s stupid enough to listen to you!
Interviewer: (Aside) Straight from the charm school, this one!
(To Boudicca) But let’s get on with your life, maybe starting with how you managed to get a statue of yourself next to Westminster Bridge!
Boudicca: I did? Well, what do you know? I was appreciated after all!
