So, today...

Today, moments after I was introduced to her, a colleague said,
"I'm doing something for the Melbourne Cup".

And I said, "Melbourne Cup?"




"Oh," I said, "I'm not that much into football."

Which might reveal just how much I'm into horse racing, too....

hee! hee! hee! hee! I'm so with you! Well - I know what the Melbourne Cup is (the upholsterer today said the sofa would be ready for the Melbourne cup and I thought - huh?) but I couldn't name you a single horse that has won anything or where it is held or ... anything? I can tell you even less about football! And you reckon you live in Melbourne :-0 p.s. love the illustration.

I love the Melbourne Cup. I love the excitement of it, the fashions and the extra day off that we get.
