M606. It goes into Bradford. by Kid. on 2002-03-29 00:39:43

I woke up this morning feeling a little groggy (not a lot - but enough that I needed a bit of fresh air) so I went for a bit of a walk. Its great walking terrain up here if you have a good pair of shoes, but I don't.
This didn't stop me wandering through the woods by the wrongly-named bomb-hole. The chances of anybody ever having bombed Huddersfield are slim, and the chances of that bomb having hit a wooded area on the outskirts are nigh on none. Anyway, I digress.
As I was wandering, Nick Drake in my ears (don't know if anyone noticed the pink moon yesterday - I dedicate it to Dudley Moore) I spotted an old-ish man walking his dog. He had stopped, and was clawing at the soles of his shoes with a stick. Not being Paul Simon's girlfriend I guess he wasn't scraping diamonds from them, but rather something more sinister that his dog had left. He finished and put the stick down.
On my way back through (I couldn't quite face the 'main' road) I saw a younger man stopping to do a similar thing, except he picked up the stick tossed it into the air and caught it by the 'bottom'. What should I do?(what should I say) Its not supposed to be like that, but its OK. He scraped his dog-doo off his shoes and went on his merry way. I just puzzled about this for a while.
Why the title? I don't know. There was a reason once....

  yeah, i think i know wat you mean. if you give a person a completely blank peice of paper and tell them 2 write their name on the back they will turn the paper over, put their name, and turn it back again-rather then writing their name and the side facing up and then turning it over. it seems to me that mankind is fated to wasted time/energy because of our own stupididty
