Erghh

My last presentation tonight, on the fascinating topic that is the local Exide Technologies factory. What's that? You're not interested?

I have an essay due next week, and then it is over rover. Praise be.

And as an aside, I'm trying to make my fortune (or at least reduce the mortgage slightly) by selling all our worldly possessions on Trademe. Not going too badly either. One buggy down, no end of rubbish to go.

If it's the Exide we all know and love here, then you must be writing a domestic violence piece -on battery?

If not, I've gone aand made a fool of myself. Oh well . . .

We've got a buggy, cot, high chair to go too! They're gathering dust right now but I can smell the money I'm gonna burn on my next gadget.....or maybe I'd better feed the kids first.....

Sir Editor, it was on lead, and how it isn't making all the people in my neighbourhood stoopid. And trust me, you couldn't possibly make a fool of yourself here. This is fool central.

Mr Reasonable, go forth and sell! It is the cheap exhilarating thrill we all love.

I suppose your paper's title was "Lead Down the Primrose Path"?

Frontier Editor said...

or "Terminal Issues"?

Frontier Editor said...

or "A Community Poles Apart"?

Martha said...

I should have engaged your help. It wasn't a clever or funny title, although I did manage to slip in a little alliteration - Pollution in Petone.

I'll use one of your titles for the paper about it I have to send in. I think the Terminal one works particularly well.

Frontier Editor said...

Or Dipolar Petone?

Martha said...

You just keep going, I've got all day.

Frontier Editor said...

and a sad, lonely day it must me if you're letting me prattle on with battery puns

Martha said...

on the contrary, it is rich and filled with laughter, chocolate and wine (okay, so toast and gin aren't really chocolate and wine).

You're not getting in the way of that.

Frontier Editor said...

then I'll take a slice of toast and a slug of Gordon's, and a slice of lime to fend off the scurvy.

Hope your presso went well. Have another gin for me.
