Welsh logic


I found an email in my inbox this evening from one of the organisations that sometimes send me clients for counselling. The gist of the email was that the sender had been 'tasked' with finding out who among their affiliate counsellors could speak welsh fluently enough to counsel in welsh. OK so far but the next bit requested me not to reply to the email if I was not a welsh speaker, 'in order to reduce the number of emails coming back'.
I don't think I have ever before been asked a question  and then told not to answer it unless the answer was yes.
Also, I think that maybe the lady's inbox will not be as overflowing as she expects it to be.

  1. I'd guess the number of people able to offer counselling in Welsh - even in North Wales! - is not that high. I'd be tempted to reply with "I'm sorry, I'm not replying because I don't speak Welsh" - - in Welsh.

  4. The new blog design is too "girlie". Instead of flowers at the top can't we have a Welsh rugby game with mud, broken teeth, blood and all?
