Mea culpa

by Stephen Tall on May 22, 2007

An occasional series of blog entries in which my dad takes me to task for what I’ve written. Here, verbatim, is his latest missive to me, subject heading ‘Timetable priorities’:

Mon 21 May Stephen Tall returns to Britain from Spain.
9.27pm Stephen Tall posts his latest blog saying he’s returned to Britain.
10.55pm Stephen Tall phones his parents to let them know he’s returned.

12 midnight one of Stephen Tall’s parents emails Stephen Tall to say, “Oh, well, it’s good to know we figure somewhere on our son’s list of things to do on returning.”

Mea maxima culpa.

julian h — I see you’ve got your grammar right – was it the 100 lines imposition you got from Monty Python?

paul walter — Oh my goodness! neither is he – how time flies when you’re enjoying yourself.
