Interact with Longworth72

From Jeff Brown’s Flat Stanley:

Stanley told his parents how he felt. “It’s the other kids I mostly mind,” he said. “They don’t like me anymore because I’m different. Flat.”

“Shame on them,” Mrs. Lambchop said. “It is wrong to dislike people for their shapes. Or their religion, for that matter, or the color of their skin.”

“I know,” Stanley said. “Only maybe it’s impossible for everybody to like everybody.”

“Perhaps,” said Mrs. Lambchop. “But they can try.”

Please try.

Comment on 1 of the Soups. I’ll try very hard to reply to all published comments.

Tweet me any time. Which somehow sounds dirty but isn’t. Find me on Twitter via @Longworth72.

Email me, I’m waiting. Which sounds even more suspect than the tweeting thing but it is just as innocent. I’m on Gmail via

Link to this blog in your own way, via mediums like Facebook, other social media platforms that I’ve barely heard of or your own blog. It’s all cool. I’m cool. You’re cool. It’s like a fridge and we’re all in it.

Kind regards,

    Can’t believe after all this time I just got around to reading this…I love this “about me.” Well done. I’d use some outstanding cricket analogy if I had one off the top, middle or bottom of my head. It may take some time to make a cricket-lover out of me. Actually, I have no problem getting my arms around the insect. It’s the sporting event that bowls me over.

    • Thanks for the kind words. Mostly I forget what I’ve written, so it’s been a while since I’ve looked at this too and if I’m honest, Jeff Brown’s brilliant words from Flat Stanley are the real highlight here. Don’t worry about the cricket analogies – The whole game is so arcane that I swear some of it is made up deliberately to poke fun at the rest of the world – If you ever find it hard to fall asleep, try looking up the Duckworth-Lewis formula for rain delay adjustments.
