I went to the village this afternoon.
I was sitting outside the coffee shop, enjoying my coffee and a puff on the pipe when I saw a couple of tourists.
They were prime targets. Not only did they look lost, but one of them was a SOTH [Sunglasses On The Head – for future reference]. I was just lining up the shot, when they caught me by surprise. They called me over!!
I crossed the road to see what they wanted. Luckily they didn’t notice the rifle. Apparently they wanted someone to photograph them. So I did. I shot them with their own cameras, so to speak. They were delighted and were very grateful. They then asked for directions………….
Now I felt a bit sorry for them. I was tempted to send them up to the bogs, but it’s getting quite crowded up there. And anyway, they were a nice couple. So I told them I was a stranger to the area, and they would be better off asking directions in the local supermarket.
None of the staff in the local supermarket speak English! They can’t find where the pipe tobacco is, let alone where the local tourist attractions are.
I went back to my coffee and waited to see which direction my friends ended up taking. They came out of the supermarket and headed off on the wrong road, of course.
So. No more bog. From now on, I’m going to send everyone into the supermarket.
I can take bets with myself as to which road out of the village they’ll take. It’s like a lottery.
It’s much more fun.
