So I am sitting in the bar of the Ulmarra hotel the other night, passing through to the Gold Coast, I'm reading a book at one end of the bar, the only other two drinkers (obviously locals and regulars) are talking by the fire up the other end:
Drinker 1: Did you watch question time today?
Drinker 2: No
Drinker 1: That idiot Chris Pyne wants to sack 40,000 teachers nationally, he'll f##k education nationally just like that other bloke did here in NSW years ago. What was his name?
Drinker 2: Can't remember
Drinker 1: Jesus, he was a complete goose. Wish I could remember his name.
Me: Terry Metherell
Drinker 1: That's right, that's him, well done.
Drinker 2 (turning to me): Shit, you're not Terry are you mate?
We all laugh.
I love it, so droll, such good timing.
