Second Happiest



If this is the second happiest place, then where is the first?


And surely, then, if there is a first, there must be a first star,

and, above that, a first double-star. To my mind, that makes

Babergh the fourth happiest place.


What the papers don’t say, however, in courtesy to Babergh,

is that we live, now, in the age of reversals. And, if an A* is

now a grade 10, then to be the second happiest, must really

be to be the next step up from – the saddest. 


‘Barbergh is almost the most-miserable place in the UK’, claims

Babergh blogger.


But, this blogger, being extraordinary, and not going by the name

of Fiona Bruce, is happy, triple-starred, and second to none.
