Quite an epistolatory week, innit? And now ....
Dear Madame Arcati
I have just seen your kind words in response to The First Post jilting me. It is indeed very stressful no longer being able to offload once a week. For example, I was on the point of writing something about the young Polish builders who are everywhere these days. Young builders from every other group are often haveable, even Muslim ones. But the Polish ones, though they are handsome and charming, are not. It must be to do with their refrigerating Catholic heritage. I'd be very interested to hear of anyone who has succeeded, where I have repeatedly failed, in pulling a Polish builder.
With best wishes, Duncan Fallowell
I cannot say for myself that I have any desire to pick up a Polish builder, but I can imagine that it's more fun than working for The First Post.
Your ever solicitous Madame Arcati
