When I was a boy there was a huge department store in Birmingham called Lewis’s and one year I got a badge from its Christmas Grotto.

Meet Me At Lewis’s it said.

Meet Meat Lewis’s I read.

I like to think this was an early indication that I was alert to alternative interpretations … because the alternative interpretation isn’t very appealing.

And I like to keep that in mind when I’m reporting an issue … because there is invariably an alternative to my interpretation and it might be more appealing.
