misunderstanding, open mind, green

Into the charity bookshop comes a man with two plastic bags full of books. "I've brought these in", he says, showing the bags to the lady in charge. "Thank you very much," says the lady. "No, no", says the man. I have just bought them from the bookshop next door. I.. er just mentioned it, so that there wouldn't be any misunderstanding."

On a tv programme called Enemies of Reason, I hear and like: "An open mind is a good thing but not so wide open that everything falls out."

In the sodden a vegetable garden, I crunch a tender, raw runner bean. It tastes green.

I'm still laughing at that first one!
We enjoyed that Dawkins quote, and the programme generally, though sometimes have mixed feeling about him. He really enjoyed himself didn't he? I liked it when he was supposed to be keeping his eyes shut during that session with the lady in Glastonbury who was trying to educate him about Atlantean DNA, but he kept peeping!
