"I don't like it. It's too big, too wet, too salty."
For a minute there I thought we were being invaded by aliens. Let the cat out, looked up, and there was this arc of small red lights moving across the night sky. Such as might run round the rim of a giant saucer, for instance. I couldn't work out what they were, moving too slowly to be aircraft, and burning too long to be flares. Went upstairs to look out the window, and there was a stream of them, rising up from somewhere beyond the town and drifting slowly out to sea. I finally twigged that they might be those burning lantern thingies, but for a while it was a very eerie feeling! If I never post again, you'll know I've been abducted after all. (Or gone blind, but to be fair that'll probably have nothing to do with triffids...)
