Minor Surgery [May. 28th, 2009|10:18 am]
Tony Grist
We took the car to Pentagon to have its back windscreen wiper fixed. We had to go to Pentagon- to the dealership- because the scrote who broke the wiper off removed not only the blade but half the arm-  and the procedure was the equivalent of minor surgery. I enjoy going to Pentagon; it's like a ritzy private hospital; you sit in a deep armchair and the uniformed staff ply you with free coffee while you wait. I took a book with me- Max Brooks' Zombie Survival Guide- and had time to read about half of it. Next time the dead rise from their graves I'll know exactly what to do: stockpile food and water on the first floor and take out the stairs- because zombies are about as brainy as woodlice and don't know how to climb.

I experienced a brief mental disconnect because for me, the "first floor" is what you might call the "ground floor". It's the one you don't need stairs (up or down) to get to. :-)

Yes, that's right. It's one of those points on which American English and British English have diverged.

How would you take out the stairs?

I'm so glad you asked!!! he said this so casually, I HAD to wonder!

And I wondered what he was going to do afterwards, to get down to the ground floor...
