The Art of Hinting General Nonsense 13 AUG 2007

Sometimes it is kind of difficult to say something to a person without offending them. It’s not that the comment is malicious or nasty per say, it is just that you wish to highlight something to them – make it a little clearer that we are noticing a problem that you seem to be ignoring.

So in line with this thinking, one has to come up with a subtle art of hinting about these things – unobtrusively of course. For example, should your friend’s flat suffer from a bit of an unsightly roach infestation, why not go over for a cup of tea and take some cake along with you.

The cake pictured below should be perfect (and you wouldn’t even have to say a word).
