There is a flower within my heart

Deep joy...

The engineer's come in to set up the scanning and faxing functions on the new photocopier.

"Can you switch the noise off?" asks Noreen.

"Oh yes, you don't want the noise on. It gives loud, prolonged beeps."

"We know, it's been doing it all week."

"My God! I'll switch that off before I do anything else."

Sadly, we couldn't find any laurel wreathes for the hero.

When I read the title of this post, I thought you were referring to new love and romance a-blossoming in your life....

Lavinia said...

Kevin, you may want to read my Friday night post. (yesterday). It is about one of your fellow countrymen...an English sea captain I know.

Kevin Musgrove said...

A kind thought, Lavinia, but love and romance are daily trampled underfoot hereabouts.

I'd already read your Friday post. Anyone sailing the northwest passage has my respect. And even the Major will concede I can't be blamed for the delays on this flight.

He's from near Epsom. I think that he has what is called a 'broad midlands' accent? By that I mean that I can clearly understand every word he says. Which is not the case for some other British accents.

When I read the title of your post I confess that I thought it was going to be a critique of Jean Genet's The Miracle of the Rose. Silly.

Major D'Omo said...

@Lavinia. That'll be interesting. Epsom is in Surrey (in what Kevin and his tribe call the "Soft South" )and Surrey is nowhere near the Midlands - is he an expat or something?

I haven't the faintest idea what anybody's talking about. Seems like a perfectly reasonable request to turn some damned nuisance of an electronic thingumyjug off to me.

The Topiary Cow said...

Cow is with Can Bass on this one, rather lost on the topic.

But all in favor of turning off all beeping, chirping and extraneous noises from these electronic servants of ours...

Uh oh. Keyboard just jammmmmmmmmmedddd
