My daughter Rozi introduced me to a favourite song over our Christmas breakfast of smoked salmon, mushrooms and scrambled egg. ‘A cliche to be cynical at Christmas,’ the song’s called (yes, that’s right), by a band called …. Half Man Half Biscuit.
I ran down to the river at 8.30 this Christmas morning, and said a big Happy Christmas to every one I saw – five people in all, three of them ladies walking dogs – happy smiles and hellos. And two grumpy men.
But not a time to be cynical.
Not just at Christmas but every minute of every day of every year cynicism is an omelette…
That should have been ‘a complete’. Thank you spellcheck, that’s a beauty. Let’s try again.
Not just at Christmas but every minute of every day of every year an omelette is a complete waste of space.
Before we suspect another’s motives, question our own omelettes.
And that is quite enough of that.
I’d intended a serious point for this Christmas blog. But we all ended up laughing instead.
One problem with writing blogs – you can be too b….. pompous.
