Birthday [Sep. 5th, 2016|12:23 pm]
Tony Grist
My mother is 95 today. Her first caller is her ex-son-in-law. He brings lilies- which I stick in a wine bottle because nothing else is slender enough. They have a conversation- part of which goes...

Ex S-I-L: X was working at Cern

M: What do they do there?

Ex S-I-L: They're trying to find out how the world began...

M: Hmph! (pause) Does it matter?

She has a point, though. DOES it really matter how the world came to be as it is?

I'm a little sceptical of the value of what they're doing at Cern...
