From the Viz book of sexist records, the world of women:=

Talking about Nothing:

Mrs Mary Caterham (GB) and Mrs Marjorie Steele (GB) sat in a kitchen in Blackburn (Lancs.) and talked about nothing whatsoever for four and a half months from 1st MAy to the 17th August 1978, pausing only for coffee, cakes and toilet visits. Throughout the whole time, no information was exchanged and neither woman gained any new knowledge what so ever.

The outdoor record is held by Mrs Vera Etherington (GB) and her neighbour Mrs Dolly Booth (GB) of Ipswich, who between 11th November 1983 and 12th January 1984 chundered on over their fence in an unenlightening dialogue lasting 62 days until Mrs Booth remembered she’d left the bath running.

Fine stuff.

Meanwhile in darkest windiest Westbrook life on the domestic front has turned a tadge more irritating. Mummy allatsea, following a two week stay in hospital and a second new hip operation (costing the UK taxpayer iro £30, 000) returned home on a Wednesday evening and by the following morning had consumed more wine than a rugby first fifteen could swallow during a week long stag do. Dispiriting stuff to be sure but at last, proving to be the straw that broke the camel’s back. No more son pandering and sycophancy. No more shite Christmases. No more nonsense and lies. Byebye mummy allatsea. You’ve dug your hole.

A great, if belated, release.


About allatsea

Sixty year old master-mariner. Absolutely gorgeous. Well wedged.....when compared to a Nairobi street urchin. Sorted, in that I haven't been in court recently. Hopelessly optimistic, terminally disappointed. Good with cats and other fluffy things. No musical talent. Generous to a fault provided it's someone else's round. Political centreist with far right and left viewpoints. A green activist from the hydrocarbon position with nuclear leanings. Averse to avarice but always happy to receive lottery wins, gifts, windfalls, legacies, prizes and wet sloppy kisses.
