Me, coming in from the bathroom: "Aww, the house smells like mangoes! " (after we had had mangoes earlier)
Mum: "That's funny, because Lucy was just saying it smells like witchetty grubs."
Also, may it be entered onto the record that GODDAMN IT, CAT, I JUST LET YOU IN!!!
The other night we had a scheduled blackout at 10:30, Mum & I planned a night of games by candle light. At about 10:15 we were getting ready, with me occasionally chiming in with, "quick, woman! Only seven more minutes of light!". When we were ready, Mum raised her arms triumpantly, "We, are, PREPARED!" she declared.Right then, the lights went out.
She then proceded to beat me 2/3 in Cluedo. But I totally topped her in terms of dramatics. (Mum: "I accuse you, Mrs Peacock, of taking the lead pipe from wherever it was kept, and useing it to DROWN all the plants in the conservatory!" Me: "I snapped!! It was those damn gazanias, they - just- wouldn't- flower!!" followed by wretched sobbing.)
Am going Christmas shopping tomorrow. Have no idea what to get anyone. Damn them all, they just do it to spite me.
Am going to buy self a flashy christmas badge. I loves Christmas.
