AND A BLACK AND WHITE CAT…
Updated: Feb 27, 2020
Pat lives a little out in the countryside so we arranged to meet at a local pub on the weekend to have lunch and go for a walk. Pat likes walking as he is a postie. In fact, he’s even delivered in my area AND knows my road; which felt a little weird. But not as weird as our conversation which revolved around just two topics: posting letters and his motorbike accident.
We flickered between these two issues for some time until I realised that we’d run out of conversation and called off our country walk, citing the rain as an excuse. He seemed a little disappointed but I distracted him by asking his thoughts on the recent postal strikes whilst I made up my mind to stick to emails from then on.
