Albert learns that the word involved says a lot about his character

Albert meets two old friends for a drink.  After a couple of minutes, he clocks it.

‘Are you two….involved now?’ he asks.

They both smile.

Then Albert thinks about the word involved.  Albert’s never been involved, not really.

Perhaps that’s sad.  Sadder still, though, would be trying to involve yourself.

    1. Oh yes, thanks, another excellent example. I found the word “involved” going round in my head a lot a couple of days ago; all the different types – the personal, the political – so much so that it started to lose all meaning. So I gave it to Albert to mull over instead……
