News, but not the serious kind
Hi! I guess I’m my new neighbour!
Blog Guy, we all appreciated your coverage of that recent election over there in Britain, but you never said who won.
I can’t get bogged down in minor details. Probably that David Cameron guy I wrote about. Yeah, looks like that’s it.
Thank you. So have Prime Minister Cameron and his family moved into Number 10 Downing Street yet?
They sort of moved into it yesterday, but just until work is finished on Number 11 Downing Street, where they will actually live.
What? Number 11? How can that be?
Number 11 is bigger and nicer than Number 10, so several Prime Ministers have chosen to live there.
Plus, it’s a BRILLIANT security tactic. Think about extremists mounting a full-scale attack on Number 10, and then seeing the Camerons giving them the finger from the windows of the place next door. For all I know, Number 10 may just be a facade.
There’s something not right about that. I mean, Number 10 Downing Street is the most famous address in all of London, right?
Not even close. That would be 221B Baker Street.
Where Sherlock Holmes lived? But that’s just fictional.
So what? A hundred years from now, which of those two names do you think people will still remember?
You mean Sherlock Holmes or ….. Who is that new guy, again?
