If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would be listening to not just the cicadas, but the drone of the helicopter that has been flying over Parliament since the early hours of the morning. The police have moved in and removed tents and other things owned by the protestors. Of course, it has turned nasty, with fires now burning and paving stones being thrown at police. The children’s playground on the grounds of Parliament has been burnt down, and windows smashed at the university. We agree that it was time the police took this action, and hope it all ends soon and that it is hard not to look at the live feed on the news websites.*
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would move on and talk about more positive things, like how wonderful this sunflower is with its vibrant colour and happy outlook. We would talk about our plans for March and the forthcoming autumn.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…I would tell you I have been suffering a bit from a sore throat, but had managed to get hold of a box of rapid antigen tests and tested negative. You say thank goodness I say, I know.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…I say why don’t you stay and we can order in pizza? You say yes so we settle down for more conversation with a glass of wine.
