This morning I was returning to the water tower via the station drive gate. There was a lady taking a photograph of the tower. She told me in a 'meaningful' Yorkshire accent that she had seen an article about it in the Yorkshire Post. She asked me if I lived in the water tower and I admitted that I did. By now she had been joined by her husband.
To my surprise she said to me "Are you local?"
Her husband replied on my behalf, "He's just told you, he lives here".
She glared at him and retorted, "Aye. But that doesn't mean he's local."
