Just brush the fluff off the leopardskin rug and give me a ninute to slip into something more comfortable.
Ooh, is that the doorbell? Could you get it? Oh, it's the plumber come to fix my blocked pipes. Thanks goodness you're here, you big strong man. What's that Mr Plumber, in your soiled overalls? It might take two to handle this job? Oh Dominic, you don't mind do you.....
(and thanks for making me smile for the first time today)
Whilst this could probably have been phrased differently, I don't think there's any need to call the police in just yet. For myself, I wouldn't use words like "stalker" lightly and in response to what seems like a genuine request. London is not the easiest place to get to know new people, after all. [And at least Dominic posted in the right forum - and is carrying on its finest traditions - c.f. TLMJJ / ChimneySweep and Simon / Daniel / everyone]
Dominic, welcome to SE1 and to the forum - we try to meet up for a few beers in a local pub every now and then and you'd be very welcome to join us. [hangs head in shame as she realises she's missed the last two]
Why thank you Mr Ivanhoe! To be honest I'd like to think of my self as generous "with" spirits - especially the gin!
It's good to have a nice comment back. I've been plucking up the courage to start posting on the forum for a couple of months now. Still very nervous to be posting in such prolific company as yourself. I'll carry on expecting to be shot down in flames for my spelling, grammar, or for saying something just plain stupid!
"Generous with spirits..". Excellent. Hope to put that to the test the next time there's some SE1 drinks.
[no reason to feel nervous 'round here. you have to be evry bad at spelling on a evry cosnitsent basis to draw any comment, and it's generally only the calling of rude names that draws any flames. welcome]
