These daily thread titles are really coming out of Droopy's book of inspirational quotes this week.
*jumps off cliff*
My week off work with nothing to do continues and I got up at 7, cleared out my wardrobe and have a massive bin liner for the charity bin, have cleaned a load of records in the Spin Clean and am off for a walk along the front to the gym on another gloriously sunny day, for a PT session.
This afternoon I’m going out for lunch with my parents and a visitor from Bermuda, who lodged with my Nan in the 60s and, unbeknownst to my Dad, took my Mum’s virginity but then moved back home and my Mum wouldn’t follow as she didn’t want to leave her family, This should be FUN
I need to go to Filton lunchtime, Shee
Are the bluebells dead yet? I've got a couple of hours TOIL I may take and go for a stroll in the woods this afternoon.
I would imagine they're on their way out...
It was too obscure a reference, tbh. They would have struggled with that one on the old Plan B forums, let alone here... #R!!!S!!!
Oh my, how fabulous
It is absolutely ROASTING here today. Does 23c at 11am constitute a heatwave in Scotland?
Is this information still unbeknowst to your dad?
I think 17c constitutes a heatwave in Scotland but it appears there is some dispute about this.
Your mum constitutes a heatwave.
She is a hot ole bird.
Send my WARMEST regards
Indeed! I only found out cause I asked my Mum about 10 years ago at a party if Dad was her first and as she went to reply “Of course”, her marvellous alcoholic best friend Marie slurred in with “Oh don’t be ridiculous, he’s not STUPID” and she was forced to explain.
Best thing was, I’d have had NO IDEA otherwise
I'm only actually going for a quick mince around Home Bargains, but as I'm in the vicinity it seems rude not to check on any latest goings on.
Someone told me recently it was rather the HOT SPOT again- it had been rubbish since they closed half of it off, but I’ll definitely stick my HOOP in when I’m next that way.
Oh I love shit like that. Some years ago I was on the piss with my old man and his retired hooligan mates. I knew he was married to my half brothers' mum obviously and I assumed then he just married my mum but one of his mates blurted something out about a THIRD wife in the middle until my Dad scowled at him and told him to shut the fuck up before he whacked him.
I did always wish a secret sibling would turn up as a kid, but that was probably more to do with watching lots of Dynasty than any belief my parents had anything remotely approaching an interesting life...
If I were betting on it theres at least one, my Dad was a notorious shagger in his day, riding the wave of female sexual liberation. It was a good reason to move away from my home town for fear of bumming an unknown sister.
Update: The boyfriend has just said “pleased to meet you” to my Dad. Who he must have met 10 times.
It’s either dementia or the most EPIC shade ever.
Anal may have saved him.
A sentence I’ve said many times before...
He met my Mum when he was 12.
Getting a bit weird now...
Is he younger than her?
No. A few years older, though I’m not sure by how much.
They were DIFFERENT TIMES!
what's a child supposed to do when there are only two TV channels?
Mr Bermuda’s other friend, who is 88 and clearly loves him dearly, keeps referring to him as “coloured”. My Nan, who adopted a black child and who ran a lodging house for Caribbean apprentices and was the least racist woman ever, used to do the same- a product of the old days but god, it’s really hard nowadays to ignore it.
Well 'coloured' was a preferred term (or at least far less offensive than many in use) back in the day, wasn't it?
My gran (who would be 110 if she was still alive) used to love to go dancing with her friend Black George 'because he had the rhythm of the jungle'. But then we're talking about back in the day when some other white people slagged her off for going out with him at all.
Oh absolutely- I wasn’t moaning at the woman at all. Just that in 2019 it sounds really odd! In fairness, her husband just said “oh they all sang like Nat King Cole. If they phoned you up on the telephone, you’d know they were coloureds”.
It’s quite astonishing
To be fair it must be confusing that "person of colour" is fine but "coloured person" isn't.
