Red Alert!

Dr Rick likes to try and catch me out:

"Hah, a book for a four month old baby!"

"The Rainbow fish, bath version."

Then I had to tell the Rainbow Fish story.

I was working as a bookseller in a bookshop in Marybone when I last suggested The Rainbow Fish to someone. Lo! Some days later the lady returns the book.

"Whaddaya doing trying to brainwash my children with Communist propoganda!"

After responding with a stunned silence she swapped the book for something else. She left.

"It's about sharing..." I mumbled to the space she had vacated.

  1. Be assured; the wonderful story is most definitely about sharing, and a very little bit about being smug spoiled git. Communist propaganda... wonders of a strange brain.
