Late afternoon today, mug of coffee in hand, I was leaning over the tank edge in a state of reverie (is that the word? - not sure). Anyway I was at peace with the world and gently taking in the view when a bellowing voice came from below:
"You lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky - (pause) - devil."
It was a complete stranger. I was too taken aback to reply meaningfully. What might have been the correct response? I'm still not sure. What should I feel about such an outburst? Lucky, I guess. In a devilish sort of way.
