Z drops in

I'm home but still borrowing computers as mine has only gone to be fixed today. So all I have for you right now are a couple of quotes.

Heard in Islington: smartly dressed mother to small child - 'Do you need to do a wee-wee?' Small child - 'Nyeah'. 'You must tell me when you do, Douglas, rather than holding your willy like that.'

Said by Sue, in the Plaza Major, Madrid, after a very large gin and tonic:- 'It's not as posh as the Place de Vosges, but the Place de Vosges is not paved.' Her diction was perfect, and this is, now, the approved test for drunkenness.

That's an incredible sentence - I'm not sure I could say it sober.

Hurrah! You are back.

Z said...

Great, isn't it?

I'll still be a bit distracted for a day or two - rather a lot to catch up on. So I won't be reading any blogs, much as I miss you all.

I shall go away on Saturday, for 2½ weeks, so you'll have plenty of time to catch up at mine.

'It's not as posh as the Place de Vosges, but the Place de Vosges is not paved.'

That beats "She sells seashells" etc by a mile. And it made me guffaw. Therefore, as phrases go, it's a winner and definitely an excellent drunkeness test.

Good to have you back - you were missed.
