  1. In town I use Starbucks for the bucket-sized cup and I can sit and write for hours with no-one disturbing me (but I always leave if they need the table) or MacD’s for the ambience (unrestrained infants and shrill yabbering blubber-butt modern housewives paradoxically nurture creative fertility) and the “only five qualifies for a free”. I’m a tightwad—product of a misspent youth.

    A ‘penny short’ used to have embarrassing connotations—thank heavens for dark alleys …

Please leave a comment. I have a fragile ego.
