I was very jolly yesterday, which I think was down to three main reasons. First, I felt soooooooooooooooooooooooo much better than on Sunday that I was just very happy. Second, with the clocks going forward at the weekend, the extra hour of daylight in the evening was great and I just soaked in the light on my way home. Third though was that yesterday morning I got an e-mail from one of my friends which left me laughing so much and through out the day, the story would just come to mind and I would start laughing again. If people saw me walking along the street they probably would have seen me grinning and thought I was slightly mad. Nothing new there then.
Anyway, my friend said that she had been staying with her cousin over the weekend and the cousin’s sister in law phoned to say that she’d had an unfortunate incident in the local DIY store. She had gone there with her three year old son and they were walking round together when a woman tapped her on the shoulder and said “is that your son?”. At which point the woman turned round to see her son sitting on one of the display toilets and doing rather a large poo…
I guess it’s difficult to explain to a three year old that despite it being a toilet, its lack of plumbing (and being in the middle of a shop) is not an ideal place to relieve yourself. The shop was not very impressed and gave her some rubber gloves and a brush and got her to clean it up. I’m sure that story will haunt that boy for the rest of his life!
I also heard yesterday that it seems the longest word that you can type just using the letters in the QWERTY line of a keyboard is… typewriter! I wonder if that was done deliberately.
By the way, I have no recollection of where the above picture came from, but it just makes me laugh.
