So today we (Ms. Rose and I) wandered through a neighbourhood event designed to draw attention to a couple of new businesses. There was a singer (mentioned briefly in ‘Reprising‘), sandwiches, smoothies, several dogs and a lady driving a Lexus that frightened me.
While we were there we bumped in to an old friend — someone I met online (for some definition of ‘online’) some years ago and who, in those days, was named after a plant just as certain other people are.
She mentioned that she sometimes reads the drivel posted here, but was nice enough not to actually call it that. I commented that only one in ten (or so) was about, um, seeing a man about a horse. You know, peeing.
There was a pause and she asked “Are you an engineer?”
