Help required!

Three are using this image to illustrate the concept of keeping in touch during your commute. To me, it looks like a woman sticking her hand into a toilet bowl! What am I missing!?

Planet Rowland!

I often wake in the morning feeling more tired than when I went to bed when Lesley, will ask ‘How was life on Planet Rowland last night?’ a reference to the complex and exhausting dreams I experience. This was Monday night’s adventure!

I was teaching a class of students where we were discussing the importance of innovative packaging in ‘fast moving consumer goods’. ‘I’m going to get some examples of innovative packaging’ I said, and left the classroom that was somewhere in Cheadle. I walked to Didsbury Road where I stole a melon from somebody’s house. I suddenly realised I’d left my students in the classroom and tried to get a Uber cab back. Unfortunately I got lost in a village which now appeared to be somewhere in the Umbrian hilllside and was unfortunately populated by the Taliban. There I met an old man in tattered clothes – played by Kirk Douglas. He led me to a place in the centre of the town where the taxi could find me. Suddenly a massive fight broke out with men leaping up and head butting each other in mid air. Then fortunately I woke up.

See what I mean?

A rare opportunity…..

On Wednesday, my friend Wido gave me the opportunity for an irresistible piece of word play. He sent me an email, from Holland saying: ‘Is Johnson still ruling the waves?’ ‘No, he’s waiving the rules!’ I replied with unsurpresssed delight!

What year is it?

So we appear to be ‘enjoying’ the 2020 Olympics. Is this simply because they had the posters and signage done? I think it would have been very cool and 21st-century if they had simply send around a bunch of people with Sharpies and spray cans to alter the signs!

Does this mean that in the future we can attach unrelated numbers to events rather than follow the clearly outmoded practice of using the actual year? Assuming this to be the case, and due to the fact that I have recently had a significant birthday, I am planning to use 2000 as my year of birth from now on. Not only that, I shall adjust it every fifth year to ensure that I am permanently in my twenties.

Back to the roots . . . .

I just can’t understand people who believe that Radio 4 is elitist and middle class . . . . I’d like to stay and chat but I must dash …. just caught a bit of the Archers when somebody is describing her stressful life and she’s reached the point where ‘then the au pair left . . . .’

Urban tragedy in the raw . . .
