HAVE you seen these folk who meander the streets sipping out of fancy coffee cups?
Kirsty Buchanan was in a bargain emporium in Glasgow when her partner picked up a thermal cup in the gadget section and turned it over to see the price tag on the bottom.
Recounts Kirsty: " When he turned it over, coffee came out, and only then did he notice the guy standing next to him staring at him – it was his coffee.
"He had just that second put it down to look at something and was a little surprised at the stranger who had apparently walked over to pour his coffee on the floor."
DISAPPEARING guid Scots words continued. Matt Vallance recalls: "There was a guy a couple of years below me at Cumnock Academy, Hugh Middleditch, whose nickname was that fine word Sheugh."
SO that was Midsummer, was it? Andy Cumming in Glasgow tells us: "I was talking to a stallholder at St Enoch's continental outdoor market who told me he sells more hot drinks in June than he sells when they are here in December.
"That's Scottish weather for you."
READER Paul McGivern in Paisley, who must like his word puzzles, wonders, as fans and now players become disenchanted with Charles Green's takeover of Rangers: "Is it it a coincidence that his name is an anagram of 'Rangers leech'?"
And adds for good measure: "Are we surprised that 'The Rangers newco' is an anagram of 'No green watchers'?"
The girl's allowed
OF course our readers are talking about a certain football tournament. As one explains: "It's no wonder Cheryl Cole just calls herself Cheryl on the cover of her new album. I'd have done the same after that penalty."
Over and out
BUT it was best summed up by a reader who said: "The England football team are like a holiday romance.
"Every time you fool yourself that it will last longer than two weeks – but it never does."
A hopeless case?
HUMOUR is a dangerous thing. A reader on the bus into Glasgow watched a chap read a text on his mobile phone then tell his girlfirend: "Dave tells me that the guy who took Ryanair to court for losing his luggage has lost his case."
"What's that got to do with Dave?" she asked.
"No, it's a joke," he replied.
"What's a joke?" she continued.
