At the start of every month, I’ll be doing a giggle blog. I’m sure we all love a bit of a giggle, as long as nobody’s being made a fool of, that wouldn’t be nice. The thing that made me giggle yesterday was this.
A lady came and did a bit of shopping, as you may know, the shop is having to close at the end of this month, due to re-developments. Only thing is, the three shops at one end of the building are being re-built, but ours and the doggie parlour next door aren’t. No good crying about it, we’ve got to get on and face the music. Trouble is, our lovely customers are not happy. One by one, they keep asking ‘what will you do?’ Now it’s come to ‘What will we do?’ But, back to the lady who made me and Alan giggle.
I’d just come from the back where I was making tea, this happens quite often, we drink tea all day long. I could see Alan’s face looking utterly shocked and his eyes were the size of saucers and he was trying hard not to laugh or something… Then I heard. ‘Thank you for the offer.’ He walked away quickly. What was she offering I wondered. After all, we’ve had meat pies, game pies, suet puds, books, jackets, phone chargers, jumpers, newspapers. The list is as long as you’ve got time to sit around reading. She then turned to me and said.
“As I was just saying to your husband. If you’ve got anything left when you finish, you can come and put a table in my garden and set up there. There’s plenty of room, the kids used to do it. You’re more than welcome.
Goodness me, I do realise she was being overly kind, but could you imagine two fifty odd year olds with a table of nick-nacks on the village green. We have to be flattered of course. Notice we’re two fifty odd and not two odd fifty year olds…
So, thank goodness someone else came up and I got distracted so I just ignored the offer. Perhaps she’d had a drink, a lot do in the afternoons. Especially the old ladies. They are quite cute though. So that’s my giggle blog. What’s yours?
