short while ago I tried describing Morris Dancing to some American friends
and I could see they were having difficulty believing me.
Hmmm, thinks I.
Why not introduce Morris Dancing to America by way of a story involving
one or more Morris Dancers...?
And so, with tongue firmly
planted in cheek (not that cheek!) I began to work on some details
Dancing (which is how I envisaged someone - who's never heard
of the subculture - would interpret the phrase).
And then it got out of
hand, as these things so often do. I'm sorry, but I can't help it.
It's the exposure to the writing of Spike Milligan, Douglas Adams, and
the Monty Python crew.
