Quote of the Day

Scene: The ticket office in our local railway station.
Karen: Can I have a return to Slough for tomorrow morning, and a receipt, please?
Nasty old lady who sells tickets and never smiles: Are you going anywhere nice?

  1. I once went to Slough.
    I lived in Hemel Hempstead at the time.
    I remember thinking, “Oh, Slough’s not such a bad place, really.”
    There’s a lesson there, somewhere.

  2. Well, I spend years building a poetry archive, and what do you do when you want a poem? You get it from somewhere else.

  3. I used to live near Slough. Close enough to have a Slough postcode… never recovered from that really.

  4. Me too, Lori. The Crown, in Farnham Royal to be exact. Very pretty, but WAY too close to Slough.
