Maeve Binchy owed the citizens of Dublin half her fortune in royalties because of how she famously evesdropped and stole conversations. Tony Curtis was the first person I heard to say all poets borrow and great poets steal. So when the text arrived reporting on a conversation between my grandchildren on the way home from school I couldn't resist. So here it is and as usual please read enjoy share and feedback.
