697. The national paper

638national

The famous sports star has a new driveway at his holiday home! I repeat! The famous sports star has a brand new driveway! It’s on the front page of the national newspaper. But that’s not all! No! No! No!

A neighbour has complained. It’s all there on the front page! Complained! She said it was an ugly driveway. She’s trying to sell her house and the next-door famous sports star has ruined her prospect of selling by putting in an ugly driveway.

There’s even more on the front page of the national newspaper! More? More! A film star was seeing buying a pair of sunglasses in a little village to the south. A little village! A pair of sunglasses! A real film star! Why was she in that little village? Is she making a secret movie? Is she having an affair?

But wait! There’s more! A third item on the front page, complete with a coloured photograph, states that the Prime Minister spends ten minutes each morning reading the morning paper! The national morning paper! Our paper! The same paper as me! He does it, he says, to keep up with what’s happening in the world.

Just on that alone, the editor should get a pay rise I reckon.

Her boyfriend was wearing jeans as well (and a tee shirt) and had a goatee. She was buying a vase for her house. She was actually paying for it herself! Out of her own purse! It may not have been for her vestibule at all; it could be for a gift for someone else.

Nola was a celebrity. There were three photos from different angles in a magazine of her kissing her boyfriend. She was wearing jeans and designer sunglasses. Her boyfriend was wearing jeans as well (and a tee shirt) and had a goatee. She was buying a vase for her house. She was actually paying for it herself! Out of her own purse! It may not have been for her vestibule at all; it could be for a gift for someone else. She paused to look at pushchairs. Could this mean that she is…

My name was called. I had to put the magazine down. I can’t wait to visit the doctor’s waiting room again so I can read more about these fascinating people.
