A bunch of tales I wanted to share with you

A tale I read

Over My Dead Body by Brian Bilston

A tale I heard

Stephen Fry on the difference between American and British comedians:

"You know that scene in Animal House where there’s a fellow playing folk music on the guitar, and John Belushi picks up the guitar and destroys it. And the cinema loves it. Belushi just smashes it and then waggles his eyebrows at the camera. Everyone thinks, “God, is he great!” Well, the British comedian would want to play the folk singer. We want to play the failure."

A tale I saw

Ways of Making Love by Hera Lindsay Bird

A tale I wrote

Jimmy was determined to
do the right thing.

For the first time in his life
he wanted to be of use.

Put his back into something.

So he did it.
He reached out.
He offered his services.

Turns out he never hit send
and the email just sat in his drafts.

Probably for the best.

A tail I like
