Fancy A Quickie?
We live in a lightning-fast world where we have less and
less time and more and more to do.
It explains why I am an ardent fan of the quickie.
I am not referring to sex. I am, of course, talking about
the daily tasks at home and at work.
I prefer quick plane rides, short reports and quick, easy
and tasty recipes. I also devour snack-sized blogs.
It’s why I’ve an affinity with tabloid journalists. They can
tell complicated stories in one paragraph.
The most succinct piece I ever read was about the
foundation of a new village in Scotland. With the
shortest place name in Britain, Ae was set up by the
Forestry Commission in 1947.
The story about the birth of the village simply read
“Ae today began to be.”
