We passed a little newspaper shop on our walk this morning and the tall person told me that it is a tradition in many homes in England to buy a Sunday newspaper. This is read at breakfast or after lunch or sometimes both because some newspapers have a large number of supplementary sections and can take a long time to read.
The tall person said that in the U.K. and in some other countries boys and girls called paperboys (and papergirls) deliver newspapers on their bicycles to people’s homes in their neighborhoods. The boys and girls get up very early because people like to read their newspapers at breakfast time.
This newspaper shop did not have any British Sunday newspapers. In fact it did not have any Sunday newspapers as newspapers are not published on a Sunday in Georgia.
I know that the tall person misses the British Sunday newspapers so I suggested that we ask a British paperboy or papergirl to cycle to our house and deliver a Sunday newspaper. The tall person did a quick calculation and said that it would probably take between 25 and 30 days to cycle here so the newspaper would be almost one month old by the time it reached us. He said that reading a newspaper that old would be like travelling back in time. Hmm, what we need then tall person is a time travelling paperboy or papergirl that can cycle back from the future.
