It’s seems that I’ve done a sort of Richard Wilkins, now famous internationally for reporting on TV the death of Jeff Goldblum (who next day appeared on TV to deny and make fun of the report).
This afternoon I rang Reader’s Feast and it seems that last Wednesday they had a power failure for a couple of hours, so they shut up the shop. Dicks Smith’s shop next door was not affected and were clearly open with the lights on. I should explain that both shops are in a basement at the end of an escalator going down there, and I didn’t go down to investigate.
So, as the shop girl described on the phone today:
“It was just a temporary hiatus.”
