marvellously honest work

Before the tour began, the guide (Michael, a charming, middle-aged actor resting between jobs) asked if anyone needed the loo. One girl put up her hand. "I do," she said, "but I won't - I don't like weeing in public toilets." There was a pause. "Excellent," beamed Michael. "I can see we're going to have some marvellously honest work out of you this afternoon." I love actors.
