I was reviewing my emails and had just deleted one I had read, when suddenly another popped up on the screen, I was somewhat taken aback by the speed of it’s arrival and even more surprised when I read the contents, to find it was today’s suggested topic, abrupt.
I remember, some many years ago watching a documentary on Sir Jackie Stewart, the three times Formula One World Champion who was offering advice as to how to drive to win a Formula One race, the gist of which was to never do anything abruptly, and to be very smooth through the corners. He went on further to suggest one should drive a racing car as if one was making love to a very beautiful woman, whereupon the film cut to an on view shot of him driving round the track.
It seemed to me there was some confusion as to his idea of nothing abrupt, smooth through the corners and the actual footage where he was wringing the living daylights out of the car, I don’t know about making love to a beautiful woman, it looked more like rape to me, but he was bloody quick, hence the three World Championships.
Now I’m short of time today so I’m going to end this blog fairly quickly and I apologise if you think this is a little abrupt.
