Wait a wee minute.

Catch yourself on.

It couldn’t have been me.
Why not?
I was on holiday.
Eh?
Or in Sainsbury’s.
Eh?
Or, or, or walking in the woods where there’s no signal.
Eh?
I’m going to the papers.
Wait a wee minute.
No, you wait a wee minute.
Etc,
Etc,
Until sense kicks in
Or eternity strikes thirteen,

Whichever comes first......
