Lefty blogger and café owner Caroline greets a celebrity customer:

My other visitor was the marvellous Phillip Adams and daughter Rory, who came looking for some antiquey-type something next door and called in to say g’day, drink coffee, milkshakes and eat brownies. I’ve been corresponding with Phillip for many, many, years, (he never fails to reply) and while I’ve had the opportunity to meet him a couple of times, I’ve procrastinated and/or had attacks of shyness …

Fortunately it had been a quiet Sunday and so he didn’t walk into a huge mess and me in stressed-out-wreck mode. Of all the things to talk about, I wasn’t really quite sure what to do say …

Perhaps Phillip and Caroline could have discussed their shared interest in borrowing. At Caroline’s site, you’ll find this banner quote:

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.
