I always thought this but Naipaul wrote it – it’s no wonder he is so good.
That one quotation sums up my Blog – I am a deeply hysterical man.
A bandit suddenly pulls out a gun and points it at a man coming out of his car on a lonely road. Why ws he coming out his car on a lonely road is not the point of this blog. Read on.
Bandit: Get out ah the car, this is ah holdup!!
Victim: What? Doe shoot mih, ah begging yuh!
