Wind Yer Necks In Boys!

The fellows on the site are threatening to give me a 'doing' tomorrow. For those who might not know a 'doing' is a form of ritual humiliation visited upon a person who is about to embrace the matrimonial state. It can involve flour, water, balloons, bondage and a host of other embarrassments.

Obviously I've informed them that under no circumstances need they dare come near me. After all I am old enough to be their mother and it would be most undignified. I have cited Health & Saftety regulations, the wrongness of wasting their employer's time and the promise that if one of them lays as much as a finger on me I'll be bringing charges of sexual harassment and assault.

I think they've got the message.

A real exciting week, enjoy!

I wish you and Bert every happiness!

If they supply the tar, I've got the feathers ;-)

I just read the first line of your last post again. I think there might have been an unconscious spoonerism there.

You wrote

"a (relatively) fuss-free wedding"

but surely you meant to write

"a (fussy) relative-free wedding".

Grannymar - thank you for your good wishes. We'll try.

Dave - feathers? And there's me trying my best to get at least one home for your kitlins.

Ganching - trust you to spot the hidden sub-text...

I've heard tales of some good doings, and the dire consequences of say hiding in a tree for four hours tryingto evade it.

K8 the Gr8 said...

Oh I sympathize!! I'll be having a hen party inflicted upon me soon... apparently I have no say in what goes on whatsoever, and that it will involve pig-tails.

*shudder*

Nelly said...

Hagelrat - maybe it's too early in the morning but I found your post totally inscrutable. At first...

K8 - would this be pig tails as a hairstyle or as an erse adornment? I like the thought of the latter.

All - rather boringly they left me alone and didn't have to hide in a tree

I'm sorry I couldn't get over with the feathers and that you had such a boring day.Maybe they've something else planned, just when your not expecting it.

Have a fun week :-)


Is a 6 week old kitten acceptable as a very late wedding present? :-)

Nelly said...

Bert says no. I say yes and so does Hannah. Nellybert says maybe. Seriously there's a guy at work (lives on a farm) whose son wants a kitten. It's a maybe.

The kittens are now nearly a fortnight old and the Mrs will probably want to keep one.So there'll be three and a mummy cat too, if anyone wants her.
