A few years ago, I was driving along the Cowley Road when I noticed that the local garage was selling togas. Being of a rather literal frame if mind and – this being East Oxford – I filed it away for future reference in the event that I should ever need a toga and thought no more of it.
A literal frame of mind can get you into all sorts of difficulties. It wasn’t “togas” – it was “autogas”. Could happen to anybody.
The other evening, I was driving along Cowley Road when I noticed three men in togas. Just saying.
