TypicalPosted: October 11, 2011
I just got a handwritten note in my “pidge” (mail slot in the JCR) at Oxford inviting me to a friend’s flat for tea on Thursday.
And if that’s not the most steriotypically English thing that’s ever happened to me, I don’t know what is. The only thing that could be more English is if I’d received this while biking on the left side of the road, while the beefeaters changed the guard, eating crumpets, singing “God Save the Queen,” and adding unnecessary to ‘u’s to words. As the Engulish are wount tou dou.
