If the person you are talking to doesn't appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear. ----- A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh
I had a good laugh after reading this quotation today as it reminded me of the story time where I read about armadillo (with twigs in his ears) in Why Mosquito’s Buzz in People’s Ears: A West African Tale by Verna Aardema, Illustrations by Leo and Diane Dillon. It also works well with some of my (unmentionable) experiences this week!
Apologies – I have been on a bit of a blogging hiatus!
