THE RAT


At a meeting at lunchtime, one of my colleagues came out with an expression we were quick to dismiss as linked to her farming roots.

Later, however, I was subsequently reminded of the oft repeated adage, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” I don’t know why but that little saying always brings to my mind a stereotypical 1950’s housewife complete with apron, oven gloves, lip-sticked smile and a freshly baked cake.

Now what was it my colleague said? “You must feed a rat, before you poison it!”

We were discussing property matters, honestly!
