Lunch?

I'm such a slovenly old git
In between jobs
I popped in to the macdonald's drive in
And bought a small fries and a cheeseburger
( I didn't eat breakfast...just coffee!)
That was at 11.50 am
After that I bought coal
Collected animal feed
Bought petrol
Walked the dogs
Called in to see my great niece who had designed some stationary for chris 
And completed the week's shop in tesco's
Only then did the overly cheerful checkout girl 
Point out that a macdonald's chip 
was firmly stuck on the front of my scarf
( complete with ketchup)

  1. I thought the punchline was going to be that you didn't wash your hands all day. Nursing teaches good habits re. personal hygiene.

  2. Hopefully, the MacD's in Wales is healthier than the one in the US!

  3. Hence her being overly cheerful...

    (Spotted a photo and it made me think of Lady Winifred, also, are you accepting donations for the next Garden Club 'do' this far ahead?)

    2. Sounds good, but I also have a couple of handmade gift tags with flowers (appropriate, no?) that I thought might be good for your auction as well. They were made by a lady who has been selected to create ornaments for the White House Xmas tree more than once. My email is on my blog if you want to shoot me a snail mail addy to send them to.

  9. Oh JOhn, I love your stories. I went to the bank machine once and in the mirror/refection I could see my shirt was on backwards. And of course there were people behind me. I also once went out and a pair on knickers had clung inside my jeans and they came out at my pant leg in a shop. I quickly grabbed them and put them under my coat and my mother thought I stole something.

  15. Oh crap what a feeling ... I'm surprised one of the furry ones didn't notice it though and alert you!

  16. That's what I thought right away, those dogs missed that fry, they should be embarrassed.

  17. Did you eat it?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Well, at least it wasn't stuck in your teeth.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I do hope that it colour-coordinated with your other wear..

  23. Are you sure you're not a Welsh Wizard,? you always seem to know the mornings I need cheering up. I have a friend who is a checkout lady; after hearing some of her tales a chip on your scarf is nothing to worry about.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Why are you worrying about a chip? It could have been much worse. It could been a cheeseburger for goodness sake!

    ReplyDelete
  25. You should have had her take a picture so you could share her joy.

  26. Other were either a) too polite, or b) thought it was a badge or something.
    Incidentally, your day's tasks read like a poem.

  27. Shoulda gone to Specsavers! Have a great weekend.xxx

    ReplyDelete
  28. You could have replied, "Oh, I was saving that for later."
    I am surprised the dogs didn't find it before then.

  29. Caught up with you, hear you on the unwanted animals, can't get over the wails out here "I can't afford to get them spayed/neutered. so yeah now the entire village is stuck with the problem of unwanted puppies and kittens.

    As to lunch, lawdy, yeah, can relate to showing off the ingredients of mine. A full time minder has been suggested just to wipe me down.

  30. Can't 'take you anywhere' John! lol
    Must be a real treat to be so oblivious.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Well did you eat it ????!

    ReplyDelete
  32. If you're already spilling chips and ketchup at your tender age, you'll be an absolute nightmare by the time you're in the old people's home. You'll eat half your food and the other half will be all over the dining room.
