Why I am not Cool (a continuing series)
Every now and then LinkedIn sends me an email with a subject line of the form: "Sukie Brown's New Occupation, and Other Updates from your Network".

Without fail, my brain fools me momentarily into thinking it's the title of a book of short stories. And then I feel a stab of disappointment when I realise it's only real life.

Does never having heard of Sukie Brown make me less cool than you? Google is no help on this one, unless it means a woman who died in 1865 and is buried in the State of Maine.

That was just a made-up name, prettier I hope than 'X', to stand for any of my LinkedIn contacts. Apologies if I put you to fruitless googling.

Challenge: let's write those stories.

That's a neat idea. Sukie Brown has assumed quite a vivid shape in my imagination now, with her ornery eccentricities and dogged vivacity.

Definitely story.

"Sukie Brown's New Occupation, and Other Updates from your Network".

Enid Blyton for the age of social media.

Enid Blyton, with just a touch of Mrs Warren's Profession.
