Truly humbled today by aforementioned SOTA tutee. We went through The Magpies today (I found it online! Incidentally it’s by a New Zealander)
Elizabeth is dead now (it’s long ago)
Old Tom’s gone light in the head
Me: So what do you think “light in the head” means?
Darryl (earnestly puzzled): Um… he’s losing hair?
I doubt I’ll find a cleverer or more informed answer. I love that guy.
