I met this civil engineer the other day

The engineer was busy building dam on the stream that falls into The Minch . All wet and watery it is. Runs across the sand, and joins the other waters there in the sea.

I said "Ey oop Sir" (because I suspected he was English). "What's going to happen there then? If you stop the water going into the sea we'll have nowhere to swim or sail the boats."

We turned around and right enough the sea was already shrinking. Becoming all Aral Sea like. The engineer frowned, mildly sneering at me as he stopped the civil engineering works and returned to his family sat on the beach keeping him company.

I was right though. Once he stopped the water came back again.

I'd love to know what was going through the engineer's mind!
