Still working off the Easter Eggs?
What you need to do is have a good snig.
To snig is a word now sadly confined to New Zealand and Australia. It means to drag along a log by means of a chain fastened to one end.
And how can we resist?
Think how healthy we would be if we all took to snigging. Think what a happyplace the world would be if we all took our logs for a drag first thing every morning.
Think of the community-spirit as we all stop to discuss the technicalities of chain-fixings and the merits of cedar versus oak.
Think of the educational aspect: the introduction to life and death when the family log eventually succumbs to fungus, woodworm, or being eaten by next-door's bull mastiff.
Think of the discipline of applying preservative and anti-rust; the flowering of creativity with the emergence of the log-dragging song and the fancy log-coat; the galvanising of the economy as entrepreneurs grasp the possibilities (as they will) for hammer-on log faces and bijou log kennels...
...hang on, I think I may have gone and convinced myself, now.
Anyone got a log anywhere they don't want?
Thing To Do Today: snig. This word may only be used in New Zealand and Australia nowadays, but its origin is as an English dialect word.
