A few very small items…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s carefully selected adjectives are: bountiful, festering, phyletic, crural, taciturn, and neotenic.
Hm, I think my favourite is ‘crural’ – just for its spelling.

Excuses for being late. No. 257.
I’m sorry I’m late, but my vestibule was crammed full of owls.

A single overheard remark:
‘No, no, it was like… ot choclut…’

Yes, he used to run a second-hand book shop; he would fake the authors’ autographs in ballpoint pen on the title pages of the novels and poetry books to encourage people to buy them.

An observation:
A warm day – all the tubby old men in town today are walking around with their mouths hanging open fish-like, showing their lower teeth, as if they are gasping for air.

Oh no!… There’s a gaggle of trendy confident academics fresh from some meeting or other entering the cafe – I’d better put my headphones on and turn the volume up, it’s going to be noisy and childish…

An observation:

A single overheard remark:
‘It was following me around – but it can’t speak…’
