Between Friends

Now that I know Peter Robinson is in the mood for some advice, I think I’ll continue where I left off…
Dear Peter,
I know yer girl Diane didn’t show my lady any love after the count, Robbo (can I call you that, now we’re friends?) but I’m not gonna charge you for the pearl of wisdom you picked up earlier, nor those to follow. But after that, I’ll be expecting some cash to change hands, brown/ white envelope I don’t care, and it’d better pass the silent collection test…
P.S. Are you seriously going to inflict Nelson McCausland on us? Other than providing an ideal context for Primary Five teachers to teach irregular comparative adjectives (Edwin was ‘bad,’ Gregory was ‘worse’ but….) I can’t think of why you’d do this….but then again, maybe I can. It seems you didn’t really get the gist of my post after all.
