have got to share...

This is a post that may make you LOL. You have been warned.







DS intrigued by a condom vending machine in the loos on the way back from Gladstone. We were talking about how people could chose to avoid pregnancy. As you do. So DS chatted on knowledgeably about "futility" treatments. DP and I were helpless with giggles. We did tell him it was fertility.

Today he started talking to me about a performance by a girl at school,for the Talent quest. Apparently she sang and danced the "Peri Erotic Table". I was quite gobsmacked until I worked out that he meant The Periodic table....

Ah English. How do I love thee...

I once lost it as an audience member when a student in a debate was talking about Australia's history as a penile colony (penal). I'm still ashamed. I couldn't stop laughing- I had to hold my nose so I wouldn't snort. The poor kid. I still feel awful. Her mum was sitting next to me and was laughing too. I'm so ashamed, my conduct was unforgivable.

Oh Penguin, that's hilarious!!! I think you can cut yourself some slack if the mum was laughing too. She probably set you off ;-)

She had actually said 'penile' while rehearsing and I had corrected her. I feel so bad.
