Cushioning the pain
A colleague has placed two adhesive bandages (plaster, band-aid) at the bridge of either ear connected to the brain because he says the elastic strings of his face mask have been biting into the skin. It has been six weeks now and he cannot take the pain any more.
End of curfew
Colleague wants to celebrate the lifting of curfew in Port Moresby this weekend but alas nightclubs are still closed. Maybe wait for a little longer.
Respect for flag
We take pride in our national flag and should at every opportunity salute and respect it. This one hanging outside the Gordon Police Station in Port Moresby is obviously well past its use-by date and is an embarrassment.
Last act
A member of the rodentia species which has been using a newsroom as its favourite hunting ground is no more. The other night, it bravely sneaked into a table drawer watched by stunned staff who were just about to knock off work. It was cornered and exterminated. The newsroom will be quitter at night now.
Too hard
It has been 17 months since we hosted the Apec Leaders Summit and the Finance Department is still waiting for the return of 52 vehicles used during Apec to be put up for tender. Most are still being used by public servants. Just go and bring them back.
Face makeover
Someone posted this: When you never smile, always judge people and gossip non-stop, this is how your face may end up looking like. Start smiling and minding your own business.
Food for thought
Happiness is not about getting all you want, but enjoying all you have.
