Talk to the Hand by Lynne Truss. ‘The Utter Bloody Rudeness of Everyday Life (or six good reasons to stay home and bolt the door)’. Only six? I shouldn’t bother reading this. Not because it’s bad but if you look at this blog you probably already agree with everything Lynne Truss has to say. People are ruder than they used to be and there is grossness all around. Just yesterday as I walked past the church, a large young man was sitting on the wall in a clinch with his girlfriend. He was showing half his gross, purple (it was cold) bum. Rude! Rather than make yourself more angry and depressed than you already are, why not read her book With One Lousy Free Packet of Seeds instead and have a laugh?
