Travelling tomorrow... [Oct. 12th, 2006|04:07 pm]
Douglas Spencer
I'm walking to the station in the morning. I like walking, it's nice.

I'm on the train from Bracknell to Feltham. Travelling by train is good.

I'm on the bus from Feltham to Heathrow. Bus journeys are fun.

I'm flying from Heathrow to Dublin.

I'm on the bus from Dublin Airport to Connolly Station. I enjoy going by bus.

I'm on the train from Connolly to Maynooth. Trains are very pleasant.

I'm walking from the station to the hotel. I like walking, it's nice.

See if you can work out why the parallel sentence structures broke down in the middle of that journey.

You still can, but it takes six and a half hours from here to Holyhead, and then a long wait to the next ferry, and then an hour and forty on the boat, and leaving home at 8am gets me into the hotel at 8pm. It eats into the boozing time. I'm prepared to put up with an hour and a half of mindless terror in order to gain a lie-in and then the chance to start drinking a few hours earlier.

Agree about the "spawn of Lucifer" thing, though.

I suspected it might take a while!
