Still feeling grotty today. Inspiration is at a low ebb and it feels like I am trying to think through custard.
If that last simile is not proof enough of my lack of creativity or coherence I don’t know what is!
So I will simply offer you a thought – whether a glass is half full or half empty there’s still water in it if you are thirsty – and a joke from across the pond:
There is a story about a new clerk in a supermarket. A customer asked him if she could buy half a grapefruit. Not knowing what to do, he excused himself to ask the manager.
“Some nut out there wants to buy half a grapefruit…” he began, and, suddenly realizing that the customer had entered the office behind him, continued, ” … and this lovely lady would like to buy the other half.”
The manager was impressed with the way the clerk amicably resolved the problem and they later started chatting. “Where are you from?” asked the store manager.
“Lancaster, Pennsylvania,” replied the clerk, “home of ugly women and great hockey teams.”
“Oh, my *WIFE* is from Lancaster,” challenged the manager.
Without skipping a beat, the clerk asked, “What team was she on?”
