We Did It At The Library

5 Feb

It went well yesterday.  Four Stockport Writers sat and wrote in the middle of the library, and as many as two people approached us, looking for more information.  Result! 

We will have a presence in the library next week (when we are running a free workshop) and the week after.

The real result, for me, was that I wrote four poems.  I don’t think I wrote four poems in the whole of January.  Dedicated writing time (unblogrelated) is such a luxury.

Joke 318

5 Feb

A man and an ostrich walk into a restaurant. The waitress asks, “What will it be?”

The man replies, “A burger and a coke.”

“And you?”

“I’ll have the same,” the ostrich replies.

They finish their meal and ask for the bill. “That will be $4.50.” The man reaches into his pocket and pulls out the exact amount. They do this every day till Friday.

“The usual?” the waitress asks.

“No, today is Friday. I’ll have steak and a coke.”

“Me too,” says the ostrich.

They finish and ask for the bill. “That will be $10.95.”

The man reaches in and pulls out the exact amount again, just like all week.

The waitress is dumb-founded. “How is it that you always have the exact amount?”

“Well,” says the man, “I was cleaning my attic and I found a dusty lamp. I rubbed it and a genie appeared.”

“Wow!” says the waitress. “What did you wish for?”

“I asked that when I needed to pay for something, the exact amount would appear in my pocket.”

“Amazing! Most people would ask for a million dollars. But what’s with the ostrich?”

 “Well,” says the man. “I also asked for a chick with long legs.”
