Just a few shortish items…

But first…
Dulltown UK/Europe: Today’s carefully selected adjectives are: floppy, hindmost, resorptive, turdine, hauriant, opsonic, and fidgety.

Excuses for being late. No. 407.
I’m sorry I’m late, but I found robins nesting in my Steinway.

A single overheard remark:
‘I was having trouble getting the soup out of my car on Beverley Racecourse.’

‘Oh, you are so provocative!…’
‘No, I’m not! Vocative? I’ve always been completely against it!…’

An observation, well, not really an observation I suppose:
I’d nipped into the toilets in the big shopping centre here in the middle of Dulltown; I was standing at one of the urinals micturating. Behind me was a row of cubicles, mostly unoccupied with their doors open, one door was however closed. Coming from behind it was the sound of a man talking on his phone, presumably sitting there, trousers round his ankles. He sounded quite posh, confident and cultured, and was discussing the finer points of business and finance. Gosh, I thought, as I zipped up, imagine having a job that kept you that busy… Poor chap!…

Another observation:
Isn’t it funny that people who are really good at spelling often turn out to be rotten writers? I expect it’s because they are basically ‘learners’, and not ‘thinkers’…

I say, how about a slice or two of nice juicy spam to go with your morning coffee dear reader?
Yes, look, fresh from my comments box this morning – here’s one from someone with the unlikely name of Davidgum:
Make an effort to decrease the level of cardboard bins that happen to be telling lies all around your home. Insects enjoy to cover up in and about these cardboard containers, and definitely will several in the event you keep them for long periods of your energy. Acquire this safety measure if you wish to save a lot of time and funds. The best way to obtain your content articles read through would be to hold them on some kind of write-up centre. Look for a balance involving simply being lively and peaceful.
Well, thank you Davidgum, I will certainly take note of what you have said. I hadn’t heard about the cardboard bins lying to us – I will surely be on my guard from now on! Your piece of write-up really and thoroughly stirred me. Do get in touch again soon!…

Yes, I’m thinking of changing my name to Magenta Ink.

A single overheard remark:
‘And then, Simon, he just bit the head off it…’

    haha, you could do a whole book of overheard conversations in the public toilets.

  2. I did like part about being a balance between lively and peaceful.
