String theory made easy



'So you see,' Captain Bill explained, 'it's got an anticlockwise triple twist with a thread insert.'

'Lovely! So what would you use it for?' Norma asked.

'Well, you would have used it for tying parcels, erecting very small tents and kite flying.'

'And other things?'

'No,' Captain Bill replied, 'just those things. String laws used to be incredibly strict.'

'Whoever knew!'

'Fascinating isn't it?'

'Mmmmm,' said Norma, 'and I'd love to stay for another 2 hours but...'

'I could lend you a few books if you'd like?'

'It's just time,' Norma replied, 'and talking of time, it had occurred to me...'

'There's a great introduction here somewhere...'

'That's it's been a while......'

'This is it, 'Tie A Knot In It'.'

'Since we've been on holiday.'

Captain Bill stopped and looked at Norma. 

'And for good reason,' he muttered.

'But it would be fun,' Norma said.

'In your opinion.'

'And we'd all be together as a big happy group.'

'I refer you to my previous answer.'

'I've already asked Cyril and he seemed enthusiastic.'

'He probably wants to do the merchandising.'

'That's unfair,' Norma mooed. 'I'm going to talk to Annie next.' 

'You're confident she'll understand the question then?'

'You underestimate her.'

'May I remind you that she currently thinks she's a tree.'

'It's just a phase she's going through.'

'And how long has the 'phase' been going on for now?' asked Captain Bill.

'............................................................................about a year,' Norma sighed.
