Conversations at the Signing Tent - Byron Bay

LP
So Steve, is there any raunchy wink wink say no more in your book?

SC
Errrr.  It's a cricket book.

LP
Oh so you are an entomologist?

SC
No.  Cricket.  As in bat and ball.  Backyards? The Ashes?

LP
Oh CRICKET!  CRICKET!  Hey Steve do you have a tea cosy?

SC
I don't drink tea.

LP
You don't drink tea?  (in loud sing song disbelief).  Steve.  Steve.

Anyway you don't need to drink tea to own a tea cosy!  Surely your mother didn't allow you to leave home without a tea cosy.  She isn't Greek is she?
LP
Hey Jules - me and Steve are gunna write some books together...

Great Australian Cricketers and the  Tea Cosies that made them.

and then

Great Australian Tea Cosies and the Cricketers that love them too much.

and

Tea Cosies from Venus and Cricketers from Mars.

That's an absolute crack-up Loani!
Love it.

And yes that Steve does look pretty darned cute!

So he's a cricketer, is he?
Such is the innocence of living in a sport free world...

The only one I know about (unfortunately) is that unattractive, sour-faced, rolly-polly one with the zinc cream permanently stuck on his nose.
