Dementional Dogma-tactics

by David Foulds


Me: (Finding on the premises a rather blurred and not quite recognisable person with apparently energetically bouncing other forms attached). Hello, can I help you?  


She: Oh. No worries. I am quite all right.


Me: Looking for someone?


She: I am trying to get to the office. I am just following these dogs. (The blurry bouncers can now to be identified as a pair of hounds, on leads).


Me: Ah . . . you want the reception desk at the Bradbury Centre then? You are quite near. I guess those dogs will know the way.  


She: They are better than a brain. I used to have one myself, but it’s completely gone these days.


Me: Same here. I mean my brain is not working too well either.


She: Anyway, thanks for your help, John.


Me: I am David, Betty.


She: Who is Betty?


Me: Excuse me. So sorry. Did I get your name wrong?  That is always happening!


She: I’m Vi. Anyway I hope your day will be a really great one David.


Me: Yes, me too . .  or should that be you too . . . or . . . what?  HELP!!!
