Sorry I had a vision of a slo-mo for you leaping to catch the paper while running along the footpath in front of a house with a"new colourbond roof" or new Sir Walter grass with a horrified family in the background. Glad it was a miss of course!
Only by 1 meter! It was a well calculated aim. The dangers of running in the morning!
I used to sometimes run past a house at the time when the owner would step outside to collect his newspaper from the driveway - and no, he didn't wear pyjamas...
....he wore 'nothing'.....?? That would make for an interesting run.
Guess he didn't expect someone to be running past, and the house had a high fence - but the gates were open :)
jennycas.....I hope that was a direct description not a euphemism.
