I’m sure you will be as surprised as I was, when you hear that I got up this morning and discovered that nothing is happening.
Life is usually pretty eventful here at Head Rambles Manor, and there always seems to be something going on, but this morning there is nothing. That is quite an event in itself.
I did my round of the newspapers to see if nothing was happening anywhere else, and to my surprise, it was. There was the usual shite about swine flu and banks going bust, but apart from that, all seemed to be quiet.
I sat for a while waiting to see if something happened but it didn’t. For the last hour, a magpie is being chased around the estate by a flock of irate blackbirds and they are making a lot of noise, but that is hardly an earth shattering event?
So I am still sitting here waiting for something to happen.
The more I think about it, the more I realise that this is quite an event in itself. Could this be one of the big events of the year? The day when nothing happens?
I just phoned RTE.
They like to know when something is happening so they can put it on the news. I told them that I had a breaking news story and they asked what it was, so I told them that nothing was happening.
They hung up.
Sharon would have understood but she isn’t on duty yet.
I’m still waiting.
I’m getting quite excited now. This is a momentous day. Still, nothing has happened.
I did another trawl around the Interweb, but there is absolutely nothing going on there either.
RTE are going to be damned sorry tonight when they realise they have missed one of the news stories of the year.
