A one-sided teenage telephone conversation heard from the footpath under my window tonight (annotated):

"...But Hemel doesn't have any cliffs."

(true enough, though there are a lot of steep hills)

"Dunstable has?"

(Um, no. It does have an escarpment off downland, which people paraglide, etc from, but it's hardly a cliff)

"Oooh I want to do that! But without a parachute."
