My God, what’s it all about? What is she driving? What is she supposed to be doing? She’s got real hard looking boots on her. She’s all do-dahed up from her knees to her shoes and has a funny hat on her head.
There’s a lot of rubbish around her, all sorts of things around her. She looks like she is going up in an aeroplane, it seems to be all open. She is sitting in there with long shoes on, things on her face and hands on the wheel.
She looks like her throat has been cut. She doesn’t look happy. Someone has tried to squeeze her throat but cut her. She doesn’t look happy to me, bit of a mix-up to me.
She looks quite happy about it. She’s learning to drive in a shearing shed. Her kids have all gone they couldn’t take that. She’s got no family.
She is sitting in a funny old thing, shoes up to her knees. There is nothing pleasant there, nothing pleasant at all. Kathleen is her name and she is just practicing to drive, to manage the wheel. Do you think it might be an aeroplane? Looks like a shed. I think someone’s looking after her, dressing her up. She wants to go somewhere. She looks like she has her boots from her knees down, she’s got that wheel and there she goes down on that thing there. I wouldn’t like to meet her, oh no there’s too much rubbish around her. She thinks it’s beautiful. She’s gonna use it anyway. She looks like she is going down on a rope, going in a car somewhere because there is one in the back there. You wonder what she is going to write on that thing behind her because it’s a blackboard. She would write “I am mad” and she would probably be correct.
Just silently don’t invite her again. She’s not going to do anything just bore them.
She must be somebody, sitting in a car, she is sitting on a wooden seat, and she’s learning to drive. She looks like she’s going to some sort of a drive. She’s sitting there going down on something. Must be in the air. She probably ran away. She must be very uncomfortable with her prongs sticking out all around.
