Excerpts

Empra’s New Nose
“Well then Mr Empra.” exclaimed the surgeon as he handed over a book of noses. “It’s not impossible to change, although to be honest, your nose looks perfectly normal to me.”

Empra remained silent – turning to yet another page of noses. There were so many noses… To be honest, he was starting to feel a bit overwhelmed.

The Tailored Suit
One day a man was given the pattern for a brand new suit. The basic pattern, although quite plain, was nevertheless elegant in its drawing. The man took the pattern home and laid it out on his table. “This is a rather ordinary suit.” he thought. “Perhaps I can change it to improve it.”

He folded the pattern neatly and placed it in a big envelope – wrote the name and address of his chosen tailor, and posted it.

Adding weight to your obesity
She had tried all manner of diets, drinks and fasting – but nothing… I repeat NOTHING had reduced her size. In fact, if anything, she now seemed larger than ever before!

“Wherever you focus your thoughts – that’s what you attract more of into your life.” replied the woman.

Road Works
Returning home, he met the road works again. The queue was about the same so he knew what to expect in the time it would take to clear them.

The next day, he decided he would definitely not care about being stopped by road works. He would not change route either. He started to wonder if these blocks to going to work were symbolic of not enjoying his job and wanting to delay getting there.

Cars, Trucks and Tractors
Just as he approached the junction, the other car decided to pull out ahead of him.

After a while, he started to get tired of his anger and annoyance. There were simply too many people and too many vehicles! Nevertheless, he decided to modify his attitude.
