Thursday 8th April

It was about half past five this morning (yes, really) when Keith broke the news to me.  "I'll make you a cup of tea,"  he said,  "Sit over here, make yourself comfy," he said,  "There's something I've got to tell you,".

You know that sinking feeling you get as your stomach flips over?  You know how you suddenly become conscious of your own heartbeat?  You know how the world stands still, just for a minute?  It was probably having a cup of tea brought to me that did it.  He perched on the edge of the chair opposite and leaned solicitously forward, twiddling his wristwatch.

"I hoped you wouldn't have to hear this",  what on earth was wrong? "But I ought to start at the beginning.  Do you know its 5.30 am?"

"Yes," I said, glancing at the mantle clock just to be sure......the house seems ok, no bruises on Keith,  Sally's eating so she's OK so what.........???

"Well when it gets to 6 o'clock,"  pause for dramatic effect, "Did you realise that it's 6 o'clock TWICE EVERY DAY".

I tell you, murder may yet be done in this house!!!!!!

That Keith of yours keeps you hopping for sure. He is one that will never be bored or boring. I'm not sure I would have had a comeback at all for that one. Hope you had a good one.

I was really afraid of what your would announce.
Great guy there; loves to surprise you and makes the world more interesting. But I just might have bashed him one.
I am up every morning at 5:30 AM and I make the tea; they day he offers to make it, I will be very concerned.
