  • The Bug Man came to her school today. He had an array of bugs to show them but she was not impressed. "He wasn't a bug, he was just a man."

    A long time ago I was seduced by a story. A man told me that, when he was at school, his teacher told the class that the next day there was going to be a fire drill in the playground. He was so excited he couldn't sleep, imagining what kind of contraption could make flames that drilled through tarmac. Finally the moment came and the bell sounded that told the whole school they had to file into the playground for the fire drill. He raced outside, as fast as he could, and waited for the drill to arrive.

    That story captivated me for years - but he was just a man.
