I am being befriended by a DadAtTheEdgeOfThePlayground - only occasionally AtTheEdgeOfThePlayground, truth be told - he works in sales, 'away a lot'. The man's son is Alex' best friend - both boys bright and quirky.

For practical reasons, it's been necessary for DadAtTheEdge' and self to have one another's phone numbers for quite a while. But today, I received a 'comedy text message'. It read:

BREAKING NEWS: John Terry Update - Fabio Capello has released a statement clearing the England captain, 'I don't know what all of the fuss is about... Everyone knows if a full back leaves a hole, it's the job of the centre back to fill it!'

That was it. The comedy text message.

I'm feeling a bit intimidated. Might have to make up some joke about boobs or something, next time I see him. You know, all laddish and that.

I have no idea what that means; but I did hear a funny joke the other day - it may be more at Alex' level 'Did you know that research shows 6 out of the 7 Dwarves aren't Happy?'

hils - you 'have no idea what that means'... it is best that way. I like the dwarves line - I'll use it.

LB said...

That's quite funny, Shane. I shall use that.

Definition of love: pursuit of the whole.

I understand your discomfiture and I love the dwarves thing.

lb - I agree, 'quite' funny.
PPP - Re that first line of your comment... was ever there a more important 'w'?
