Never Judge A Book By Its Cover.

During yet another tortuous train journey today, a small genteel woman in her sixties sat down opposite me. She was travelling relatively light and I guessed she might be heading for London for a theatre trip. However, as the travel delays developed, it emerged that she was doing something very different.

In response to someone's moan that they were going to miss their connection, she responded that she was unworried as she was headed to the hedonistic Glastonbury Festival and had four days to get there!

Worse than that Kaylen - stuck on train with hippy granny instead of entreprenerial Zimmerperson who failed to sieze the moment for an en spec Glastonbury Ticket auction!

She had a captive audience and I am certain Mr Dodds would have paid over the odds to help poor granny out.

1) I don't do hippy.

2) I was making a marketing point!

Well it's filled with enough unsupported assertions, gratutious name-dropping and dubious examples so.........

But your commenting on it is the clinching imprimatur!

And I am still feeling cheated too and devastated at John not being a hippy and flabergasted that marketing can't do much about that.

What went wrong with marketing?

But I have a photo of Senor Dodds to prove he i....nah I wouldn't do that. Forget it. Not even for a pair of free Glastonbury tickets or even Robert Plant's shabby and muddy Hunter wellies would I do that.

Gorra rubbery elbow. Anyone?
