How Embarrassment!

I did some grocery shopping this morning. I like to go to a separate, not-part-of-a-shopping-complex butcher just up around the corner from home on the way home. They sell good quality meat, I know them, and they know me.

I really miss the anonymity of the city sometimes.

Today, while one bloke was toting up my order, another lady was ordering what she needed from one of the younger ones. What she actually said was "Do you have a nice bit of rear?"

I burst out laughing. Aloud. Very loudly. You can guess what I thought I heard her say.

How many ways are there of explaining my loud, inappropriate laughter away?

...Approximately None.

Just for information, I don't know what the answer to the question I heard was. There was a counter and they wear these aprons...

That is hilarious. You made me laugh out loud.

Don't you hate it when that happens?

Reminds me of the Monty Python song "Sit On My Face" where they perfomed in aprons and not much else.

Aren't you glad you know me?

Hello there - thanks for popping by on my WTBAY day ... so much fun for me to now visit all these new folk ...

I love your pup - we did dogs first then children ... now we only have the kids - but I am sure two dogs will rejoin us once the boys are old enough to appreciate animals and be responisble for walks etc.

Off to have a wee read now - cheers le
