There are times in life when people come up with little nuggets of pure unadulterated humour and you just have to laugh - my week has been full of them! Unfortunately, you really do have to be there for some!
Last night I made Cannelloni for dinner - I don't cook, well actually saying that I do cook. I cook well. I just hate it, I would rather stick pins in my eyes and sing the Birdie Song backwards whilst gargling with Caustic Soda (children - do not try this at home - cooking is much safer!) Anyway, I digress. I made Cannelloni and it tasted good. I served it with Spinach and Garlic Ciabatta, lovely. Cooking does not get tougher than this. Anyway, I made Cannelloni and I served a plate for me and a plate for Ollie. He ate all of his and the plate was clean - the sign of a successful meal. One tme I served Mango Chicken and Lemon Cous Cous, what possessed me I don't know, it was rank and tasted like Lemsip with Marmalade Chicken, not my greatest but that is the gauge I have for my ffod. It either gets eaten or left on the plate and even the flies won't eat it! So the meal was a success. Two hours later, lying on the sofa contented, Ollie turns to me: Did you put garlic in the Cannelloni? I look puzzled and say: No, Why? Confused look from Ollie: Its just that I can taste garlic really badly I chuckle to myself: Could have been in the Garlic bread you ate?! Ollie looks mortified: I forgot about that!
It was funnier at the time! and then there was the one at wok when a chap came in and said he saw a nice red boat in Ramsgate with lots of chrome and a colleague asked if it was the life boat? No, he said, it was red and had lots of chrome - it was in the harbour. I turn round and say off the cuff - You sure it wasn't the Sally Ferry - he was not impressed but everyone else thought it was funny - you really had to be there :)
