The day Tess moved into her new apartment on Punt Road Hill it rained buckets. The removalists didn't show until 8.00pm and, when they did, their truck was too big to squeeze down the laneway to her underground access. They had to park on the street and cart her belongings through the pouring rain.
Tess wrapped her mannequin in a sheet to protect it and heaved it up Punt Road. All of a sudden she heard a huge BANG then a CRASH, followed by a SMASH. Three cars travelling down the hill in a row had rear-ended each other – distracted by Tess and her 'dead body'. She felt pretty bad about that.
