Talk of the town

 

Sir, – Something unusual happened on my quick lunch break recently. Two customers, complete strangers, separately started a conversation with me. If I was having lunch “down the country”, that wouldn’t be a surprise. But as this was Dublin 1, it was very unusual.

The reason? I was reading a real, old-fashioned, book. – Yours, etc,
