I find this post though where it gets a mention ;-)
As I've mentioned before, I am a lover of words and quotes, they don't have to be by famous people (Although Groucho Marks IS a personal favourite). I find the people around me provide enjoyment with the things they say.
My children are a priceless example, 'your bottoms to big for those pants', Hmmm, I hadn't even asked 'does my bum look big in this'!!! (although I DID have to concede she was right).
|sweetie pickers should!|
'I'm not entirely sure where my placenta is', an example from one of my dearest friends ( no, she wasn't pregnant at the time).
Also, from the same friend, 'I'll pay you in a minute taxi driver, I'm just mowing the grass' (hmmm, no C, you're blowing your nose).
'Help, I'm driving round to your house now, get the scissors out, I've got the bloody hairbrush STUCK in my hair' (C again).
'I'm sitting in the dark empathising with Esmerelda' (C's blind, bald hamster) I did feel I had to point out that being blind it was possible that Esmerelda wasn't getting the full benefit of her empathy.
'Of course I wouldn't have driven off had I realised Id just reversed over my own cat' (again, C).
'I'm at the casualty department with the toilet cistern' (yep, C strikes again).
Just in case you thought C had the monopoly on madness, I do have other friends ;-).
I 'lost' M once (well, more than once to be perfectly honest) in an underground car park in the early hours of a Saturday morning, she just VANISHED. Having had a vodka or two and not wishing to draw attention to myself I wondered around the rows of cars hissing 'M, where the bloody hell are you?' for a while and smiling inanely at passers by.
Eventually a voice behind me said 'is this what your looking for?' and 'can you move her, I'd really like to go home', hmmm, feeling a little worse for wear and very tired she had decided to take a 'nap' on the floor of the car park.
The other time I 'lost' her was when on leaving a kebab shop (again in the early hours) I saw her disappearing up the road in the back of a white van. I suppose on refection I should have been worried but at the time it didn't seem too out of the ordinary.
She turned up at my house two hours later with a litre of semi skimmed, I didn't ask for details. M and I have history and some day I may inflict it on you.
Possibly my favourite quote comes from Rowland who asked, 'the invitation says to bring something with you, do you think boil in the bag cod would be ok?'
(HUGE grin) 'Perfect Rowland, the BBQ starts at 6!' Rowland doesn't have a girlfriend but Im sure, somewhere out there, there is someone for him
