Please ponder the example below :
The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent terrorist threats and have raised their security level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.” Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to “Irritated” or even “A Bit Cross.” The English have not been “A Bit Cross” since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies all but ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorised from “Tiresome” to a “Bloody Nuisance.” The last time the British issued a “Bloody Nuisance” warning level was in 1588 when threatened by the Spanish Armada.
. . . noticed what’s missing from MH ?
Well, how did you get on ?
For my part, I gave up smoking.
I gave up smoking for 29 long, wife-shouting-at, cat-kicking, ripping-the-paper-off-the-wall, hours.
I thought 29 hours was quite enough, and I’m happy with my achievement.
However, I am in awe of a person with a steelier resolve.
