A Conversation for Eleven Pipers Piping
The massed band of the Nempnett Thrubwell Pipers may be lacking in numbers (only eleven of them), but they more than make up for it in enthusiasm. I just wish they wouldn’t practise so early in the morning. Some bright spark read that there is an island in Scotland that doesn’t recognise the Gregorian Calendar, and so is several days behind the rest of us. Never ones to miss an opportunity, the Pipers have decided to hold ‘the First Hogmanay of the New Millennium’ next week in sympathy with the islanders. Twisted logic here, I feel. Nevertheless, despite torturing us last Friday, the Pipers are practising hard for their next outing. Pass the earplugs, please.
Obviously a Sassenach with a deprived (depraved?) upbringing who has no concept of the finer points of the pipers’ art. The whole purpose of the piping profession is to expend so much energy in the execution(?) of the pibroch that large quantities of the Water of Life are required to resuscitate the piper. The enjoyment or otherwise of those unfortunate enough to be listening is neither here nor there. Fortunately, in the large majority of cases those listening have previously fortified themselves with the same elixir as thos participating so a guid nicht is generally had by all except Sassenachs without the sense to similarly prepare themselves!

None of you gits realise the true motivation behind the pipes. The reason is actually in lululemon outlet your own arguments. The pi lululemon outlet per is actually trying to get rid of people from his/her imme lululemon outlet diate vicinity; whether you lululemon outlet consider “immediate” to be 1metre away, or half way round the planet is up to you. The enemy would spend the most important part of the battle (the part just before you get stabbed) wishing they were in New Zealand, then, as they die would lay in amazement, wondering how they could actually wish they were in New Zealand.
