I passed a woman the other day as I was hurrying to the bus stop. She had such a look of bewilderment on her face as she watched me run that I had to stop and ask her.
“Why are you looking at me like that?” I asked, worried that I must appear ridiculous or stupid or something else I’d find embarrassing.
“Why are you in such a rush, son?” She asked by way of reply.
"I've got so many things to do today. I need to get into town before everything shuts".
“Och, no ye dinnae”, she flatly contradicted me, the hint of a wee smile enjoying itself in the corners of her mouth.
“What are you on about?” I came back, wondering what she could mean.
“All you need is Leith, son, all you need you is Leith!” she said, her face breaking into a big grin.
I stopped. She was right. She IS right. All you need is Leith!
