One of the hazards of hanging around coffee shops is that you're often thrown into close proximity with people who shout into their cell phones in order to share with us how interesting their half of their conversation is. Mr. Roger That (Norfolk is a military town) is a case in point, aiming to entertain us with loud gouts of one-sided nonsense such as "Did you check the locker? Did you check the locker? The locker!" I aimed several stinkeyes at him, but they fell harmlessly to the floor.
