Logistical Solutions - a rant.

Logistical Solutions, it says on the sides of far too many lorries.

Logistical Solutions? Logistical Solutions??

But doesn't that just mean...er...delivering things?

Great heavens, but it's a LORRY, for goodness' sake! What else is it going to do?

Or are there lorries out there with a wider agenda? Ones that gild elephants' toenails? Or juggle medium-sized planets?? Or knit booties for orphaned hedgehogs???


Ah well, I think I'll stick with simple delivery services, myself.

I've got a feeling it'll be cheaper.

Word To Use Today: logistics. This word comes from the French word logistique, from the word loger, to lodge.
