After unsuccessfully looking for his mighty Daihatsu Mira 3 cylinder 660cc in the car park of a major shopping mall (C8), Winmalee’s David Harrison began to believe it might have been stolen. “I contacted local police and was put through to a police officer stationed at the shopping complex. When I told him the make and model, his response was, “No one would steal that!” He was right. Eventually we found it.”
“White sedans (C8) aren’t very common in my area, but the white ute is everywhere all the time,” writes Andrew Brown of Bowling Alley Point. “My kids weren’t able to play ‘Spotto,’ since a yellow car is rarer than chicken teeth, but they played a very loud, repetitive, and fast-paced game of ‘White’.”
For Enfield’s Richard Keyes, “Parking lot amnesia (C8) is easily resolved by placing a colored ball or ribbon on the antenna. As Homer Simpson said, it’s a great idea and everyone should do it. However, since most modern cars have shark fin antennas, this idea will never catch on.”
Similarly, Blaxland’s Marjie Williamson reports that while living in Homer Simpson’s country years ago, her friend Barbara said: “The only way to find her car in very large parking lots (C8) was to find a brightly colored, to tie the inflated balloon to the extended antenna.”
Our regular Seattle correspondent, Chris Keane, is currently caring for bored, mindless Ukrainian children in Poland, but when he’s at home he doesn’t suffer from refrigerator door amnesia (C8). “I’m mesmerized in front of the open refrigerator. I’m starting a new trending diet called the Work From Home Diet, which involves going to the kitchen every hour or so to check to see if anything edible has magically appeared in the fridge, or to gauge if I’m desperate enough to to do it Eat everything that was found inedible in the previous review.”
Meanwhile, Teven’s Barrie Restall says: “I’ve had short-term memory loss (C8) for as long as I can remember.”
More words of wisdom from a Tasmanian. After sampling the many varieties of stone fruit over the summer, Russell Hill of Hobart “concluded that the sweetest flavor is found at the edges of blemishes”.
Oatley’s John Christie heeds Shane Dominick’s call for someone to invent a cordless garden hose (C8) and “rushes off to patent my watering can before anyone else thinks of it”. It’s going to be quite a race.
