Ooh, I forgot...

I was in the queue Tesco to buy 10 Marlboro Menthols this morning, the man in front of me was incredibly smelly, had dirty grey hair, and a trolley full of Strongbow. I noticed these things about him, but paid little heed because (quite frankly) Wisbech is full of people fitting that description.

So he walked up to the counter and ordered "three lucky dips fer Wensdee and a coupla packsa Roffmans".

But then he enquired if there had been a Euro (but he said 'Uroe') Millions winner that week.

The lady on the counter replied in the affirmitive.

Then the man turned to me and said, "Probbly a fuckin' foreigner", before tipping me a conspiratorial wink, like I was somehow in on his little racist outburst.

I wanted to point out how it was 'Euro' Millions, and therefore it was quite likely that a 'foreigner' would win it, it being a competition that involves many EU countries, and all... I didn't though, because I was too scared of his wife, who'd suddenly turned up in her wolf-print fleece, brandishing an umbrella and looking like Bella Emberg.

Wolf Print! I love Norfolk Wolf-Themed Apparel. My Wolf-Themed T Shirt still leaves its dye on my skin. I'm not racist though. Maybe that bloke off Seinfeld should get one.

God that Killers song is on the radio. It is so, so, awful. What kind of cretin would make such a song?

Maybe it's residual resentment from De Gaulle never wanting the UK in the ECC/EU to begin with... and then the fact they wanted y'all to dispense with the pound sterling... or he could have been racist... it's not like my part of the world has a great history with it (Texas).

Anyway, I saw the title to your blog and thought it was great/creatively different... more people in general should love dinosaurs :)

You probably stink to a lot of people, especially after you've smoked one of your menthols, but maybe before.

Do Google searches and that...
