Every day my diary kindly informs me of an event that's occurred on that day of the year.
The entry for the 25th August goes like this:
A woman fired from a cannon fails to break the English record for the second time 1974.
Now I want to know three things:
first, is the 25th August really as deeply dull as that entry suggests?
second: did the woman (I like to think of her as a Tracey. Possibly a Tracey Huggins) experience her second failure at breaking the record, or did she fail in her attempt to break the record she'd gained previously?
third: what else did the poor woman break?
I really do want to know, you know.
Word To Use Today: cannon. This word comes from the Italian canna, which means tube.
