SIT DOWN, DEBBIE
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.
