Landslip of the tongue..


'A landslide in Worcester Park?' a work colleague asked me in the corridor this morning?

Momentary panic as I wondered how she knew that I was the Worcester Park blogger, then a wave of relief as I realised that she had just heard about it on a traffic bulletin.

'Yes. Terrible. Half the town gone.' I replied, shaking my head with grief.

She gave me alook of frozen stupidity, for the full 5 seconds it took her sarcasm sensor to break down the ridiculousness of my reply, couldn't quite compute a response to and shuffled away looking perplexed.

Humour. It's wasted on some people.
