Don't say, do say.

Yesterday, at the Toppled Bollard night club, situated as it is in the less opulent regions of the Northants, Leicestershire and Rutland borderlands, a woman asked me to dance.

After two rather pleasant dances she said, ‘You never notice me.’

I said, ‘That’s an omission on my part. I will try harder.’

She said ‘That’s not good enough. Tomorrow I’m going to throw myself under your car.”

I said, ‘But I only had it cleaned yesterday.‘

This, I feels, shows that sometimes one needs to say the unexpected in order to gain attention. Advertisements and responses which simply follow the line of thought that the reader expects rarely (in my experience) lead to a sale.
