I said the sea was classy
and she said, “Surely you
mean glassy?” “Glossy sea?”
I said. “You’re right; the sea
is glossy more than classy.”
“No – glassy,” she said. “Glassy.”
“You’re right, of course,” I said.
“It does look grassy green
today.” She gave me quite
a look. “Glassy,” she said.
“You’re right,” I said, “it’s quite,
quite ghastly; think of all
that sewage for a start.”
“GEE – ELL – EH?– ESS – ESS – WHY?”
she said­­. “The arsey sea?”
I said. She stared at me,
all glassy-eyed, and left.
