It was the early hours of a Monday morning, Stanley could feel the sun starting to shine through the window above the desk. It wouldn't be long before the smell of roasted coffee beans and the sound of gossiping women would fill the air. Not long after that, his Master would arrive and sit himself down on Cherry. Stanley could tell that Cherry was already priming herself for his arrival, spinning back and forth, and up and down, preparing her body for the days ride. Of all the days in the week, Monday used to be Stanley's favourite. Master and his Secretary Annie would begin preparing the documents for the week. The firm hand of Master or Annie would direct him between one document and the next, Stanley used to love that part of the day. But now he felt that Monday was the worst of them all. All Master wanted to do was push one piece of paper inside him after another. He no longer gave Stanley the daily polish that he now cried for, the daily grind after more than 5 years in this office was beginning to get too much. As he sat there, glistening in the sun, Stanley realised that it was time to get the rest of the office into gear for the day ahead. He knew he didn't have to worry about Cherry, Tori, or Old Pappy. But his old friend Ben, and the new computer Hadyn were still fast asleep. "Okay! Attention Furniture and Stationary, it is time to wake up! The day is about to begin, Master will be here at Seven AM sharp! He will be most displeased if you are not ready to receive him" The familiar sounds of groans and beeping from Troy filled the office, and Stanley knew - today was shaping up to be just another long and tedious Monday.
