The William Morris, Cowley, Oxfordshire   3 comments

“It’s damper than a heifer in heat,” was out of my mouth before I could think of something better, or at least ruder.  You never have to wait long when you come indoors from a 30 minute run in the weather–even in the light mist we suffered this day–before someone says (regardless the number, size, or orientation of windows out of which they could look for the answer), “is it raining out?”  I know I have at least one truly offensive retort within me;  I shall work on that.

The William Morris is a Wetherspoons and not one of the cool ones built into a refurbished, built-for-other-purposes building but rather just a modern stainless and glass ‘spoons.  That’s alright, though; the beer is cheap and there were five ales to choose from (Exmoor Silver Stallion, for me), and there are always drunken old guys for entertainment.  The ones I sat near were on about how there is no Ministry of Peace, and the worldwide constant state of war and how it is all the Americans fault.  At least they didn’t comment on the rain.
