Missed Opportunity

I am bitterly disappointed. I was riding on the mobile asylum this morning, engrossed in my complex lace knitting project, complete with chart. Unfortunately this distracted me from what was going on in the seat in front.

It's about a topic close to my heart - linguistic differences between British and American English. Check it out:
