In which I resolve to read less

“You can see it’s not normal, though, can’t you?” my husband asked. A few days ago the Jehovah’s Witnesses popped by with a leaflet urging me to read some Bible verses. My response was to flip through my Bible looking up the verses, while getting annoyed that they’d supplied a reference for looking them up rather than just printing the relevant verses.

“I mean, it’s only a short bit. They could easily have fitted it all into the actual leaflet.”
“What are you doing?”
“It’s not as if you’d have any copyright issues with the Bible. I mean, the authors are all dead.”

Dear [insert name of power company here],

I’m currently looking for electricity suppliers for my vibrant, up-and-coming house and I came across your website. We’re looking for an electricity supplier who can power the fridge, the washing machine and other electrical appliances. We want someone who can deliver electricity quickly as required, ideally in a no-fuss quirky way that “fits” with our house style.
