Has there ever been a nicer morning?

Canberra was one happy town as I rode into The Eagle’s Nest this morning.

Is it just because the summer was so awful? Or was this morning particularly magical in its own right?

This morning is good, yes.

But the morning after your footy team wins the GF is better.

What does your girl friend think about that?

She said you must be a Melbourne or Western Bulldogs supporter and excuses you for not knowing GF = Grand Final.

I couldn’t help but notice a particularly lovely apostrophe falling like an autumn leaf from a word in your third sentence. Not because it was needed, but just because it wanted to say hello.

You could go far in the National Grammar Day Tweeted Haiku Contest:

Could you give a warning before you post links to such explicit grammatical material?

pert punctuation
pilkunnussija pleasure
commas pinch colons

Although I don’t approve of Twitter, of course. And I tell myself that I’m not a total dweeb.

Indeed; this was a corker of a morning for riding to work and then catching up on April Fools days foolery.

That’s interesting, what time? I get in earlier than most and I encountered more traffic at 7:30 so maybe more are leaving earlier than usual. Still adjusting their internal clocks?

Probably was a tad before 8:30. I put it down to people preparing themselves for the Easter break with some ‘warm-up laziness’.

Well. There appears to be a glaring lack of grumpy old so-and-sos on this thread, akin to a comment about reptoids not appearing on an article about a conspiracy theory of some description. Allow me to oblige:

“Hrrmph! Still not cold enough yet! Better not be like this come Anzac Day!”; and

“T’were better in my day! You call this autumn?” etc etc etc.

I recall a nicer morning.
It was the 4th of September 1982.
Magical.
Beats this morning hands down.
