I know I end up retelling a lot of the 49£ stories in the real world in the sort of "a friend of mine was telling me..." and leaving it at that. Some stories are too good not to be shared. The one I know I've told tons of times is the one about the woman sitting in the men's changing rooms reading a rag mag waiting for her son - it always gets a great reaction.
I confess I can't remember who wrote it. For me, who still only knows a handful of my fellow pickers to see, I can never remember who said what. I think this story was by TB's. Then polka or JM told me about Marian Keyes's blog which I love and tell everyone about - and still I can't remember who it was that mentioned it. I think without an image the name of the poster doesn't stick. I do have a sense of what everyone is like but just don't know who said what right now. is anyone else like this?
