Tuesday’s Piece

“The other day a man came to dinner and I said to him, “You’ve been here before?”.

“Yes.” said the man.

“And,” I conjectured, thinking hard, “it must have been some two years ago?”

“No,” said the man, “You aren’t quite right, it was at tea-time.””

(An Innkeeper’s Diary by John Rowland Fothergill, 1876 – 1957)
