‘Well I guess that Thailand’s out for holidays,’ said an older gentleman in sauna earlier today. ‘Yeah, I never much fancied it. It’s a shame though. My sister’s off to Tenerife Monday,’ replied the dozy woman. I guess you could say they were just making conversation, but I have a low tolerance of people who talk in the sauna and this exchange further confirmed my prejudice.
Yet as the death toll hits 114,000, there’s very little to say. Somehow the irritating sauna couple prove that life just goes on, whatever. But I suspect the enormity will come home early in the New Year, when certain colleagues just don’t turn up.
