Round One: The Games vs. Reading

“I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.” – Groucho Marx

You can have the television remote and watch the Games.

We are reading.

“If you reckon literature’s consolation, you should try religion.”
“Actually, it isn’t wholly my idea.”
“No?”
“I’ve been reading this book by Kneeshaw.”
“Who?”
(Shows him the book) “Kneeshaw.  He’s a philosopher.  Frederick Kneeshaw.”
“…I think that’s pronounced Nietszche.”

– Alan Bennett, The History Boys

  1. Ha ha. Let your creative juice flow on………Going to see an endodontist tomorrow, first time knew that there is such specialist exist. May have to have a root canal done, very scary indeed.

    • I won’t take all the credits. Again it’s a family effort. The Bees surely cheer us up and this is my favourite picture. They are here to stay, if there were demands….
      A pile of Alan Bennett awaits.

      Good luck with your dental visit. Does after-visit-ice-cream still work?
