Heavy breathing

Milton's been getting earache again about the Champions for Change. He's holding firm but getting browned off in the process.

"Courage, mon brave," I tell him, "one volunteer is worth ten pressed men."

Sybil and Lippy overhear this and are up in arms.

"If we're pressing men, why aren't we getting a go?"

Champions for what?

Except of course when the volunteers are also pressed men.

Courts here let offenders "volunteer" for community service. And since libraries are seen as easier, say, than picking trash up from beside the road, they get lots of "volunteers."

Lavinia: snicker!

cb1: don't worry: we've no intention of actually changing anything.

Ms Cow: in a past life I had experience of such "volunteers." Interesting.
