Just a few short, but pithy items…

But first…
Dulltown, UK/Europe: Today’s giraffe is the one on the bicycle having to bob down over her handlebars when going under low bridges.

Excuses for being late. No. 412.
I’m sorry I’m late, but the people were trying to oust me…

A single overheard remark (shouted in the street):
‘Tell him, I rang him!… Dumb-arse!’
‘Ah… right…’

An observation:
A young blank-eyed unshaven dude on the bus was talking on his phone without using any sibilants.
Round these parts, sibilants are for straight people and sissies!

Another observation:
In the town centre, a middle-aged, unshaven, moustached man, with badly cut drab brown hair, wearing a drab grey jacket, drab grey trousers, a drab brown knitted pullover, and smoking a hand-rolled cigarette. He had on his feet a pair of brand new bright fluorescent red training shoes that glowed and flashed beautifully in the summer sun.

‘Yes dear?’
‘What’s the difference between artists, and ordinary people?’
‘Well, generally artists enjoy their time working, whereas the rest of us…’

Rewards will be its world-wide-web finding out about in addition to purposes.
Well, thank you so much Sheena, you have completely turned around my style outlook view on such interesting subjects. As you say, certainly not a adventure machine – ha ha ha ha ha!… Please do not hesitate if you should feel like getting in touch again – I do love your amazing sentence styles!

A single overheard remark (a customer in a scruffy second-hand shop):
‘You certainly do have some very interesting tankards there!…’
