Slow reader

Feeling quite well,

yet,

The doctor has said,

I am sick,

he suggested,

using

indirect speech

that I might die,

perhaps

tonight.

 

Malcom Gladwell

Calls it

mitigated language:

 

‘Captain, perhaps, you should look out of the… window;

Is our altitude not

a

little

low?’

 

My oxygen requirement

Is too great

My arteriole – alveolar gradient

too steep;

(I’m not sure if they intended me to overhear.)

 

And,

Here I am,

Always been a slow reader

Page 143 of

Dragon Tattoo,

and I am so enjoying it;

My daughter told me to read the book

rather

than

watch the film;

I didn’t quite

expect things to turn out

like this.
