Melbourne 365: Day 53

  2. I, in all sincerity, really liked the mice analogy too. It was the opening line, and it’s instantaneous grip it had on me to read more that impressed me most. I was like a moth to the cliched flame.

    Blame NAPLAN preparations, but I was highly impressed with your ‘hook’. 🙂
