To the astute person driving south in a silver sedan on Mullum’s Jubilee Avenue after 4.30pm last Saturday afternoon: thank you for ripping the solitude, beauty and tranquillity of a rare sunny afternoon right out of my day by honking so loudly at local identity Alfred. For a moment, the serenity was stifling.
I presume it is because you wanted to share a smile with Alfred, impressed with the way his garbage bag attire was fashioned, or perhaps you were delighted at getting the last chook or bottle of white vinegar in the store? or not slipping on mud today, that your rainwater tank was at capacity for the 35th week in a row? Maybe you’re still reeling from last week’s election results, or Ukraine’s Eurovision win – or was it just because you were a thoughtless individual with no empathy for the complexities or intricacies of people’s lives? When you’ve decided on your reasoning and know which way you’re swinging – get in touch at 1800 STFU.
