A conversation overheard at The Faraway Home For The Disorientated
Cookie: (shouting) Would you like a nice wee cup of tea?
Elderly Lady: What?
Cookie: (still shouting) A nice wee cup of tea? And a wee buttered scone?
Elderly Lady: D’ye know, you remind me of that girl used to work for the railways?
Cookie: Do I?
Elderly Lady: Aye. Worked for the railways. Big stout girl like you.
Cookie: Thanks very much!
Elderly Lady: Aye. Big and stout. Used to collect the tickets on Platform 1. She’d come in here by times too. Used to pass round cups of tea and maybe a wee scone.
