Default Honestly, this really is the last post


I'm off. Really. Look, I've got my coat on. I'm leaving. Don't bother trying to talk me out of it, I'm really going this time. There's nothing you can say that'll make me change my mind. Goodbye. I wish you all happy lives and success in your writing careers.





Here's my email address in case you can't live without me.

Right, that's me off then.





By the way, I left the money for the milkman behind the clock. And the stop tap is under the sink. But don't turn it too tight or it jams.

Right. Bye, then..



What was that..?

Thought you muttered something. It's so quiet here, it's hard to tell muttering from the distant rattle of tumbleweed.

Cheerio, then. Please don't make a fuss.
Oh, you weren't. Fair enough.

Bye...

You may regret giving CityBoy one last chance.

With apologies, 'Tart, but this is one of the funnier things I've read at WB in quite a while.

Confirms what I've always thought, Mo. You should get out more.
