Jewellery and Rings (first published June 2007)
Woman walked in this afternoon.
“Have you got any rings”
“Rings madam?” says I (Come on then – what would you say?)
“Yes, rings – the charity shops are closed – I need some rings and don’t know where to go – I’m new to Salisbury.”
“This is a bookshop Madam.”
“But I want to buy a ring.”
“How about a jewellers madam.”
“Do you think so ? – I’ll try that then”
And she walked out.
