A READER wonders why when I commented on the new Spital Hill Tesco last week, I didn’t point out it looked like a ridiculous Lego building?
Simple, really. Because I didn’t think of it.
Now he comes to mention it though...
This drinks voucher in my wallet? Oh...that’s nothing...just the prize for winning the pub quiz at The White Lion in Chesterfield Road the other night.
I’m a modest guy, though, so I don’t really like to mention it...
EIGHTEEN out of 20 since you ask – but, really, stop going on about it now.
TALKING of pubs, though, nice sign in the newly opened Shakespeare’s, in Gibraltar Street, Shalesmoor: “Tasteless fizz free zone”.
Fans of Carling need not enter, it seems.
IT’S years now since I got my A-Level results (one A, two Cs and a withering look of disappointment from the old man) but I still can’t quite move on from my instinctive teenage reaction when I read about youngsters achieving a million A**s or whatever it is they dish out these days.
That is to say: I still can’t quite move on from my instinctive teenage reaction of thinking ‘What a geek’.
Which, of course, is quite clearly an unattractive mixture of jealousy, resentment and downright bitterness.
But there it is.
And that means this might be said through gritted teeth but I feel I should say it anyway – hats off to Tapton School genius George Lee who scored seven A*s this year, one of country’s most astonishing set of results.
Whatever one’s initial reaction to that, it has to be said, the boy done good.
