I discovered yesterday that 'It's Your Time You're Wasting' is the 24 654th best seller in the UK according to Amazon. See for yourself:
and scroll down to 'Product Details'
I was absolutely full of myself and had convinced myself that success as an author was just a few steps away. (Well 24653 anyway). I assured Mrs. Chalk that I would not be changed by the trappings of fame and promised to ignore the attentions of groupies.
Her withering look brought me back to Earth as she pointed out that the 7th best seller was a book on Astrology.
Astrology, for God's sake! How can anybody possibly be that stupid. (Visions of my Year 11 bottom set wander into my mind)
I imagine nowadays that it's probably a degree course somewhere.
