last time i was in england, i was hiking, from one coast to the other. one morning i woke up in a small pub, came down for a bite before i kept going on my hike. couple of ole construction guys across the room saw me come in and lay my pack down. one of them says to me in a surly gravelly voice: “keep clear da moors”. i looked up from my plate, didn’t even blink and replied “OI! you made me miss! i never miss”. the room laughed. true story.
