    Is the old chair, perchance, wooden with a straight back? Does it need to be plugged in?

    Is “a close friend : PAL” someone who will LAP dance for you?

    Do you want a friend that close?

    When General Charles Napier conquered Sindh (now in Pakistan) in 1843, he sent the British government the telegram Peccavi – or “I have sinned”.

    Um, no. Current thought is that its best just to let it go. Raging over a perceived injustice reinforces it in your mind.

    “Forgive me Father, for I have sinned. I have been with a married woman.”

    “Before I can forgive you, you must tell me the name of the woman you have disgraced.”

    “No, Father. I cannot tell you that.”

    “If I tell you her name, will you confirm that she is the one?”

    “Yes, Father, I can do that.”

    “Was it Mary Flanagan?” “No.” “Luisa de Silva?” “No.” “Surely not young Ellie Price?” “No, Father, not her.”

    “Then, if you will not tell me, you must leave here unshriven!”

    Outside the church, “Come on boys. I’ve got three hot tips!”

    I wrote a book, too. Historical mystery novel. Can’t even get an agent to glance at it.

    At least this author has found a professional to read his work. No publisher (exception below) will accept a submission that does not come from an established agency and no agency will accept a submission from an author who is not established.

    The exceptions are direct to press companies that will accept any drivel from any idiot because it costs them almost nothing. Readers go online to look for anything that might appeal to them. If they read eBooks, they pay a small sum for a file. If they want a real book, they pay a larger sum to have a physical copy printed and an even larger sum to have it shipped.

    The problem is that most so-called authors of such stories are either barely literate, extremely boring, or incapable of concise writing.

    I just finished a science fiction novel that told an original and interesting story in an unprecedented manner. Trouble was the author wrote a 200 page book but took 650 pages to tell it.

    I spent Grade Seven in a private school. In English class we were given old fashioned pens that had to be dipped into bottles of ink every couple of words. The teachers swore it would improve our writing.

    It didn’t.

    Those who can do.

    Those who can’t, teach.

    Those who can’t teach,, teach gym.

    My worst ever gym teacher (lazy and ignorant) quit to run for mayor. He is rated as one of this town’s all-time greats.

    SIGH!
