You can never be sure that an Eccles cake would stop moving

How events are organised...

From: Frog
To: Dagmar
Subject: Children's Reading Week event

Hi Dagmar,
The poet's available any time that week. Which would suit you best at Raccoonville?

From: Dagmar
To: Frog

Which day is the poet available?

From: Frog
To: Dagmar

The poet is available any time that week. When's best?

From: Dagmar
To: Frog

Any time's fine.

So Frog books the poet and sends out the publicity. Sure as eggs...

From: Dagmar
To: Frog

We can't have the poet on a Thursday. The Ladies' Reading Guild uses the meeting room that day.

Don't people like Dagmar drive you round the twist?

zmkc said...

Can't the Ladies' Reading Guild listen to the poet?

Happy Frog and I said...

How utterly frustrating!

nursemyra said...

I like zmkc's suggestion

Kevin Musgrove said...

Pat: oh yes.

zmkc: that would be far too easy... that was the sort of thinking that let me let the library service drive me barmy.

Happy Frog & You: indeedy.

nursemyra: so do I, but you know how it is...

Madame DeFarge said...

Can't the Ladies Reading Guild read out loud to the children and thus save the poet a journey?

Kevin Musgrove said...

Madame deF: it's folk like you as keeps the NSPCC in work!
