Short and Sweet

Prologue: Yesterday, one of readers commented that he thought my blogs were very like me - a bit too long windedI was cut to the core at the injustice of the remark. But remembered reading somewhere that, in order to gain followers, a good blogger will respond to comments, thereby creating a loyal readership. I have decided to follow this advice so, having received a comment (from one of the four of you out there, you know who you are) I have decided to wipe away my tears, and treat it as positive, constructive criticism, and write a shorter blog. Any of the three remaining readers are more than welcome to send a protest comment about my blog being too short. I'll be waiting.......

Here follows the actual blog post......

I was in a supermarket with my friend, Karen, yesterday. I was in the aisle selling bedlinen. I saw a duvet set labelled "Irreversible Duvet Set". Then I realised that I had read the label incorrectly, and that it was actually labelled "Reversible Duvet Set".

But it made me wonder what an "irreversible duvet set" would be like.

Would it mean that, once you had decided which side of the duvet to have on show, that would be the side you'd have to have on show forever, with no changing of your mind? How would that work?

I asked Karen what she thought about this.

She told me to shut up and get back into the car.

I kept on thinking about it though. Quietly. In my head.

All the way home.

The End

Who said that? Why, I've a good mind to give him a piece of mine, (even though I misplaced it somewhere, a long time ago)! Grrrrr! Leave my sister alone, you bounder!

That should do it!
