I once met a traveller from a sunny land,
Who came to me only to demand:
'Andrew, I am so confused, please tell me this:
Why is this land of yours so full of mist?'
So I said to him with a patient smile,
'You'll know why, if you stay a while.'
And so he did, with a frightened face,
Glancing out the window as he glumly paced:
'Where is the sun! Where is the light!
This desolate plain is so grey and white!'
Then I lost it, declaring, 'You're such a pain—
'It's bloody Scotland, the Land of Rain!'

    Sorry it's been a while, guys. Been preparing for uni and it's all a bit mental, but I'm going to write some more Drabbles soon hopefully.

    Haha! Nice one Andrew! Good fortune at uni (I’m preparing for uni myself, also feeling mental about maybe delivering lessons online). There has been a dearth of drabblery here recently, with Christopher holding the fort with Jake Randolph, his private eye. I must get back into the groove on that, but this Covid stuff is sapping enthusiasm and get-up-and-go (it got up and went!)
