Yesterday was hot, and the ducks on the road into Strathalbyn sat too close to the road and refused to move. People came into the shop and said, ‘God, it’s hot!’
Today is cold, rain in the morning and people coming in and saying, ‘My God, this is strange.’
One man said that a second ago, it was summer.
His girlfriend said that she doubted it, and would he pay for her books.
He said, ‘How am I supposed to do that?’ But he paid for the books and looked pleased.
She said, ‘I love this weirdy weather, you can read in it.’
He said, ‘I know.’
She pointed out that he didn’t like reading.
He said, ‘I know, but I might be going to start,’ and he looked around for a book to start with.
She said, ‘I don’t believe you’, and looked pleased with him.
