If ever I were. And now may have to stop this silly thing-whatever-it-is.
Those waiting for any elaboration upon the subject of the dreadful ‘J’ may have to wait FOREVER!
I am At Work.
As I take my job very seriously, I am reading the local newspaper. As are several of my colleagues. There is a news item regarding a very pleasant – by all accounts, and there are lots of them – local man who had tried to prevent some youths from being a terrible nuisance on his street and who had been killed to death for his trouble.
My local paper is filled with such tales.
I read it, and can only think that the sub-editors have let themselves down.
The front-page headline on the subject reads ‘Death of Mr. Nice Guy’.
It could have been better, I think.
How, ask my colleagues. What would be the more effective headline?
Me: ‘No More Mr. Nice Guy’.
Absolutely nobody laughs.
Many look horrified.
