This morning at the Greensborough market I handed the bookstall man the book I wanted to buy. He said the price and handed it back to me saying "Are you sure you don't mind reading these kinds of letters and diaries? Because they can get a bit boring and tiresome?"
I said "No, I don't mind - and I'm sure this one won't be boring."
"Oh well, suit yourself" said he, and that was that.
