chance remarks: Keep your eyes and ears open
I asked my Welsh friend Huw what the score was and he said:
'We lost comfortably.'
I laughed and shared Huw's remark with everyone I bumped into. They all laughed too.
Why is it funny? I suppose because it turns on its head the usual post-match saying: 'We won comfortably.'
It also gives rise, in my head at least, to thoughts of a team not trying, not being bothered about losing, even avoiding breaking into a sweat.
Whenever you hear a conversational snippet which is funny, either intentionally or otherwise, make a point of writing it down or leaving yourself a message on your answerphone. You never know when it might be useful in some way.
And road test it by trying it out on people you know and people you don't know
In summary, listen out for anything you can use - and don't lose it.
Cheerio for now,
