Warning take by me!

Postby shak » Wed Jul 10, 2013 8:10 am

We were out for a run with our best mate and the dog last night and when we ran out of steam we went to the pub (you can carry this athletic thing too far :D ). Our mate was just back from the far east and talk turned to Japanese lavatories. In the crowded pub garden, I was accusing our mate of being unadventurous and not trying out all the functions. I love all those heating, spraying and hot air things but, cut me a bit of slack, until I was 10, we only had a shared ty bach at the top of the street :oops:

So the conversation goes:
Shak: did you try out the hot air?
Mate: No. I didn't know what it would do
Shak: Well, it dries by blowing, ermmm, (slowly and carefully) I FYNY DY BEN OL

I looked up and saw a bloke grin at me but thought no more about it until he said ' nos da i chi', as we left. You never really know .... :D

Latest daft story ..... I was out running with my dog this morning and met a group of ladies and their dogs. We see them most days on that route. One lady said "Come on Soot, hurry up and catch your Dad'. Her mate replied, 'Soot won't understand that, he speaks Welsh'. Well, sort of true; he understands some Welsh and some English but doesn't have much to say in either :D I'm working on the 'bore da' thing until those ladies (and possibly their dogs) crack. Only a matter of time. After that, it's how to pronounce Abersoch.

:D

I did that with a bloke around here who used to take his dog round the opposite way to our walk. He's now clearly decided to walk somewhere else rather than face a cheerful 'Bore da!' every morning... :sad:

A true evangelist would doorstep him until he repents! I'll be round with the toenail pliers and the stale bara brith :D

One man's evangelist is another man's freedom fighter, and all that, eh?...:wink:

Yup, apologies for bad taste surrealism. Today's meeting in the field went, ' Hello Andy, bore da Soot' :shock:
