  • I'd walk a mile for...
    - a large glass of cold coffee with ice cream
    - to meet a friend I haven't seen for ages
    - to hug my mischievous little nephew Marc. He loves making noise, playing with plastic containers that we call 'dabbas.' Yesterday I phoned his father, my brother, to wish him a happy birthday. He told me that Marc was playing with the washed dustbin and finally put it on his head. And then of course he started yelling because he couldn't see anything with the dustbin over his head.
    - I'd walk a mile and even more, if that would keep my whole family fit and fine.
    - I'd walk a mile to put a smile on someone's face, especially if that person hasn't smiled for a long time.
    - I'd walk a mile to see a rainbow, and put it in my pocket for a rainy day.
    - I'd walk a mile to watch swans swimming in a beautiful lake in a lush flower-filled valley.
    - I'd walk a mile to save the girl child,
    to prevent rape,
    to rid the country of corruption,
    to cut through red tape,
    to deliver justice to those who need it,
    to save the rainforest.
    I'd walk a mile, or fly a few thousand miles - to meet my Cowbird friends.
