The Daily Teaser — 14-12-2015

Oooooohhhh, but that’s good … 

Right now … ?   Right now I’ve just managed to get myself my first cup of tea of the morning.

Frankly, the caffeine’s welcome.

Initially … ?   Well, initially, today was going to be a day off.

Until yesterday, that is.

When one co-worker had to pull out of the shift he’s was scheduled for.

I’m happy to fill in, given notice: and happily did.   The extra money’s welcome.

THEN I managed to get to bed, last night, at about midnight.   After all, doing a shift, today, meant catching up with Teaser writing, and emailing BT about my broadband usage.

The latter’s on-going: I seem to have used a lot more, in the past few months, so was emailing them to clear up on a point.

At any rate … ?

It means, this morning … ?

Well … 

That caffeine’s definitely welcome … !


But let’s move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw both Olga* and Debbi† putting in their answers: with both scoring five out of five.

“We have this extraordinary conceit in the West that while we’ve been hard at work in the creation of technological wizardry and innovation, somehow the other cultures of the world have been intellectually idle.   Nothing could be further from the truth.”
Wade Davis, born December 14, 1953.
And this song … 

Enjoy your day.
