  • How could I resist Alex's challenge?

    1. A cup of tea is always welcome.

    2. It's hard to find good cheese in the supermarket.

    3. Fish and chips always tastes better eaten from newspaper.

    4. A good beer can always be drunk cool, a bad beer only when chilled to freezing.

    5. If the car is making a strange rattle, it's better to have a mechanic look at it sooner rather than later.

    6. If a storm threatens, don't walk home in socks and sandals.

    7. A cat let out of the door will want back in five minutes later.

    8. Too much time spent typing on a computer keyboard ruins your handwriting.

    9. Sometimes it's better to just get out of the house.

    10. The worth of a bottle of wine has nothing to do with the price paid.
