Zodiac, cancer the nit
Do they have nits in America?
erm, perhaps I phrased that wrongly, I meant to say do they call them nits, or are they headlice or somesuch?
I’m revealing my advanced age here, but I remember when primary schools used to get visits from the nit nurse, always known as nitty Nora in this part of the world. Of course if she still existed you wouldn’t be allowed to call her Nitty Nora these days, it would probably count as descrimination or workplace bullying.
As I was working on cancer I had this mental vision of Nitty Nora going on an internet date, and as she sits down in a posh restaurant her companion asks what she does for a living. “Oh,” says she, airily, “I’m a head lice prevention and control executive for the local education authority”
Her companion looks blank for a moment, before comprehension dawns “oh, so you’re Nitty NOra then!”
I like this little chap even more now he’s finished, he’s oddly cute and makes me feel justified in doing the entire zodiac piece.
And I’ve only just noticed that the pop up book of zodiacs has a list of famous people for each star sign. Cancer we have Henry VIII and Emmeline Pankhurst. Something tells me they wouldn’t have got along too well?
