Don’t let people drive you crazy when you know it’s in walking distance

a few days before i went off on my hols i picked up a flyer publicising a ‘memory mall walk’ to raise money for alzheimer scotland. it asked if you would “fancy a sponsored walk as never seen before?” now, i’m sorry for picking on a worthy charitable organisation and all that – but – the whole thing is WRONG on soooo many levels.

1. since when did it become a mall, like riiily?? closer to – “cuttin aboot doon the joan poal”* surely?
2. why would anyone want to walk around a shopping centre? jeezycreezy, the countryside isn’t just for torturing foxes you know.
3. apparantly they do this in the states quite a lot. i’m guessing that this is probably around shopping ‘malls’ considerably bigger than our local effort. the flyer boasts ‘walks of up to 2 miles’ …. wooo hoo!!!
4. i really hope the – as louise rennison would have it – ‘elderly mad’ don’t wander off and gets lost in the changing rooms of new look

*leith rhyming slang

  1. Fuckin LOL!!! I want to call you on the phone (or as the British say “Ring you on the mobile”) just to hear you utter such great phrases as “the countryside isn’t just for torturing foxes you know” and “elderly mad” and the title of your blog was clever! Love it!
