Village Gossip [Oct. 23rd, 2013|09:15 am]
Tony Grist
Mary dropped by yesterday afternoon, full of chat. I made a pot of tea and retired to another room. It's not that I dislike Mary, because I don't, but I needed a quarter of an hour to adjust to the increase in the noise level. Otherwise I'd have had a panic attack and- quite possibly- said something unforgivably rude.

She wanted to talk about Miss Mills.

"You know Miss Mills. You must do."

"No," said my mother.

Mary told her anyway.

I dislike it TREMENDOUSLY when people just 'drop by'. You find cell phones incredibly intrusive, I find the Dropping By-ers thus so.

The neighbours here are in the habit of dropping by without warning. It's the culture, I suppose.

They have been doing it that way for thousands of years. Still, it drives me nuts. If I want to "drop in", I do it on the internet.
