News, but not the serious kind
You’re Queen for a Day!
Blog Guy, I want to be royalty in my next life. Those people get to do whatever they want. Command performances, the best art…
You’re so right. We sent an Oddly Enough team around with Queen Elizabeth yesterday, so you could see the rich tapestry that unfolds for her.
Huzzah! How exciting!
First up, we toured a bottling plant, and got a first-hand account of how beverages are put into bottles. It’s a show most people can only dream of.
Oh. And then?
The royal tour of an umbrella shop, watching a guy dazzle us with a display of umbrella dexterity. “You see this cloth-wrapped stick, Your Majesty? Presto! Now it’s a device to keep rain off of you!”
Did I say royalty? I meant I want to be Bernard Madoff. Or Phil Spector. Or….
But wait! We haven’t even gotten to the tour of the foundry!
