My mail has just been delivered, and one item has been franked with the rather curious legend “believe in children”. Are there a lot of child-sceptics out there?
Or is it that “Every time a fairy says, ‘I don’t believe in children,’ there’s a little child somewhere that falls down dead”? Rather the converse of the famous quote from J M Barrie, and if true something that may need more serious action from the authorities than a postmark. It does also lead to the worrying conclusion that the Post Office think I am one of the sidhe. I can assure you that it is just poor posture, I do not have wings concealed ‘neath this shirt – or, more’s-the-pity, magical powers.
