After the drama of this hung election, I watched the parade of politicians and pundits and tried to decide if they were my kind of people. I often wonder who are my kind of people. I’m sure a lot of the people who visit this site I would get along with famously but some I’m sure I would not. In other words, would we like each other?
Well, I have an infallible test that I am sure would work as well for you as it does for me and it is this: you have to imagine the prospective person that you may or may not like in the following situation – they are alone in a practically empty room with a full size mirror on the wall and a simple table in the middle of it. On the table rests one of those huge colourful quilted tea cosies. As time passes and the person gets restless the question we have to ask ourselves, is, would this person put the tea cosy on their head? If they would, then they are my kind of person. If not, then they have failed the test. If you don’t believe in this test just look at the people in the news, your own work colleagues, or your relatives, and tell me honestly would you like any of the ones who would not put the tea cosy on their head. I rest my case!
