So! What d'ye think of this summer skirt I bought in TK Maxx?
Bert stares at the skirt that Nelly holds up against herself with a look of incomprehension on his face. Finally he says,
That's a nice wee skirt.
Nelly glares. Then Bert says,
What d'ye expect me to say? Sure what do I know about skirts?
Well you could have said it's a nice colour for summer or that you like the embroidery detail.
Aye! And I could say that it's beautifully cut.
Aye! Ye could!
Oh well. I suppose I should be grateful he doesn't say,
So how much did that cost?
Bert! Would you try and keep the legs of that coffee table in line with the tiles. I hate it sitting all coggly like that.
Why? Is it bad Feng Shui?
Aye it is!
Do you ever think you might be going mad?
