A last hurrah

by Kathrin Verhoefe

I thought I’d spend my last few days in England engaged in useful pursuits, like drinking as much Guinness as possible. My friends, however, decided that I couldn’t leave their fair land without a weekend in Leeds. I was fairly nonchalant about this, as they serve Guinness there too, until the night before departing when I was casually handed a “Yorkshire-English dictionary”.

This surely, I thought, was some kind of joke. An in-joke. A not very funny in-joke.
