Polishing the Goat




I got back from Lanzarote last night. I managed to get the suitcase unpacked and the washing machine on yesterday, but my To Do list today was quite long.

  • Clean out old food from the fridge
  • Buy more food
  • Laundry
  • Get to a cash point
  • Polish the goat
  • Phone friend
  • Send August invoice for tour guiding

Polish the goat? No, I don’t have a new pet, or a new bronze statue. While I was on holiday I wrote the first draft of a story called “The Goat,” and today I polished it.

But maybe I should write a story about someone who actually does polish a goat.
