Well, you did ask for it.

Today I went looking for a pencil pot in Tesco. they didn't have any.

Darn.

What -- exactly -- is wrong with a mug?

A good point well made. A mug it is.

You can never be too sure that the residue of previous occupying liquids has been fully expunged. Coffee flavoured pencils may sound delicious, but then you keep sucking them and you die of lead poisoning.

You're a glass-half-empty kind of guy, aren't you? I can tell ...

No-one ever died of repeatedly ingesting minute quantities of clay and graphite. So there.

My colleague who usually gets the milk in is on holiday.
So I sit here sans tea and the shop is all of 300m away.

I hung some pictures in my living room this morning and one is just a tiny bit lower than the others.

How mildly annoying.

The petrol station where I often grab coffee in the morning has stopped their rather excellent coffee-and-a-muffin combo deal.  And this on a day when I was too lazy to bring my flask.

My trousers have been washed with a piece of paper in the back pocket. So now I have a pocket lined with flaky paper. I'm slightly peeved.
Hmm, just pretend I wrote something witty eh?

I just went for a walk (in the rain) to deliver my step-grandson's birthday present.

He wasn't in.

I've eaten something that has slightly upset my stomach, giving me tremendously bad wind. And tonight is "date night". Married squaxx will understand my mild annoyance.

You're weird. My wife and I eat dates whenever we feel like it, without having to specify a special night for it.

I can't help thinking a whole night on the dates is going to compound your wind problem Steev.

And keep an eye on the monkey - if he keels over do not eat the dates, even if you've already thrown them in the air with a view to catching them in your mouth.
