SIT DOWN, DEB­BIE

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Deb­bie the Soccer Mum has been busy again hec­tor­ing her poor soccer kid from the side­lines, de­spite hav­ing never pulled on a pair of soccer boots. Ap­par­ently end­less wis­dom about the game has ac­crued over the years. How easy! Other play­ers are full of sym­pa­thy for the young player but over the years he has built up his own de­fences against this stream of “ad­vice” from the side­lines. “She’s been do­ing it since I was five,” he says. “I just zone out!” looked af­ter in the af­ter­math of the big day, thanks to the Por­taloos con­ve­niently (boom, boom) still stand­ing by the road two days later. Not ev­ery­one has an iron con­sti­tu­tion. For a while the Shire was the best toi­let­ted (is that a word?) district in Qld, a rare hon­our and per­haps some­thing coun­cil could build on as an added tourist at­trac­tion. Re­search shows vis­i­tors put toi­lets at the top of their list.
