lines of mine and friends.
‘Look here me old matey!’
This to a person far used to being addressed as Sir!
(You can take the girl out of Dartford, sadly not Dartford out of the girl!?!)
Two from a very dear eccentric friend...
‘As I was saying to my mother...
‘To cut a long story short!’
then proceeding to cut a short story... l o n g!
‘As camp as custard!’

‘Just like a fart in a colander looking for a hole to get out!’

Whenever I am asked by anyone about any numbers required ie
How many slices of toast?
My reply is the same... 26!
(the fact I only ever have one, one and a half at the weekend is a mere bagatelle!)
My Auntie Marjorie I always called Auntie Margarine... that’s one from Danny.
I always call the fridge, t’oven
‘You’ve got one on the other side!’
as he stubs his toe or hurts his arm!
‘I am surprised he didn’t cock his leg up and show it who was the boss!’

I shrugged and thought maybe they get my disapproval of this wonderful creature finishing up as a ruddy rug... I did hope so!
Over the years I have opened my mouth and put my foot in it more times than I care to recall.
Have you any to share?
