‘Prove it’ we’d say. He’d shake his head, smile an inscrutable smile and say ‘don’t worry I’ll keep it to myself’.

To my cost, I’ve discovered our doubts were unfounded.

    Ooh, I love that: ‘Our doubts were unfounded.’ Chilling. Imagine what a person could do with a ‘skill’ like that! Or maybe not!

    Wouldn’t it be fascinating to be able to read the thoughts of others? Like the use of forage, Keith.
